Jack Friskney-Adams’ exhibition (left) ‘From Delhi to Sienna’ will take place in the Greta Williams Room at St Ives Library for the whole of September. The exhibition will comprise two series of Collagraph prints. These Collagraph prints are based on travels in India and Italy – pre-pandemic lockdown. It seems a long time since we were there and perhaps even longer until we can return.

SARAH WOODS – SEPTEMBER COLLECTION NEW CRAFTSMAN GALLERY 24 Fore St, St Ives, Cornwall, TR26 1HE. www.newcraftsmanstives.com
Rising young artist Sarah Woods studied Fine Art at Falmouth University. She makes work that responds uniquely and subjectively to the landscape, achieving a pure and perfect translation of Cornwall’s special light, wide spaces and low-key colour. This special Festival exhibition includes both paintings and etchings and focuses on the simple but beautiful shape of the Cornish coastline, following the edge of the land and balancing, through simple marks and subtle changes in colour and tone, the topography of the coast against the wide-open space of sea and sky.

Also on show are ceramics by Rowena Brown and woven stones by Mindful Objects.

Bucks Stops Here SALTHOUSE
Main Gallery, Norway Square, Open daily 10am-6pm (Friday until 1pm)
Bucks Stops Here is a group of artists from Buckinghamshire. This will be our ninth exhibition at the Salthouse Gallery. There are four ceramic artists and a photographer this year – Richard Ballantyne, Chris Inder, Chantal Fordham, Carol Read and Chris Read.

Sunday 12th to Friday 17th September
And another two artists… lockdown edition Seona Myerscough and Katrina Slack, SALTHOUSE Gallery2, Norway Square
Open Daily 11am – 6pm, Private View Saturday 11 September 6pm – 9pm.
This is the second exhibition at The Salthouse2 gallery for these artists. The exhibition was postponed from last year, and now the work has changed from two years ago. It has echoes of the earlier work, but comes out of lockdown to a world that is transitioning and blinking in the new light, which itself flickers.
They are two very different artists brought together by a collaboration that commenced when they were part of the Porthmeor programme at St Ives School of Painting. Katrina is a local artist and Seona is the interloper.
Seona and Katrina have continued to create work in the lockdown, but the challenges have been unexpected, resulting in different consequences for each, however there are also similarities, at times, struggles to work, at others intense periods of activity and much reflection.
The resulting work has remained true to their practice, but the pause in the world has brought their pre occupations centre stage, no escape. For Katrina the environmental challenges have been even more in focus as she lives adjacent to the Carbis Bay Hotel and Seona’s dreams and thoughts have left the night and entered the day.

Monday 13th to Saturday 25th September

, Exhibition John Leach: 65 Years A Potter Entrance to THE LEACH POTTERY

The Leach Pottery presents its first solo exhibition of John Leach who trained at the Leach Pottery from 1960-63. John, David Leach’s eldest son and Bernard Leach’s eldest grandson, was born at the Leach Pottery in 1939, returning in the early 1960s to train under Bernard’s watchful eye. The exhibition can be viewed on the days that the Museum is currently open: Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday. You are welcome to see the exhibition free-of-charge, or you can see it as part of a Museum Visit. If you are dropping in to view the exhibition only, there is a small possibility that you may have to wait, before you enter the space, during busy periods.

15 June 2021 – September 2021, Exhibition Century of Connections Cube Gallery at THE LEACH POTTERY

Century of Connections explores the connections and friendships at the heart of the Leach Pottery – a site of creativity and renewal, a place where the local and international meet.

The Pottery has sustained remarkable connections between people, pottery and ideas for the last century. Whether inspired by a desire to make and see pottery or to explore ideas like those in A Potter’s Book, now 80 years old, these connections remain important today.

This exhibition takes you from Leach and Hamada’s early influences in Eastern and early English pottery, through to work by potters from around the world who have trained, or been inspired, by the ideas and friendships fostered at the Leach Pottery. In celebration of its 80th anniversary and its impact on the pottery community, the original manuscripts of A Potter’s Book are also displayed, alongside a fascinating paper model of the Leach Pottery, made by Leach in c.1920.
