Sunday 12th to Friday 17th September
And another three artists… lockdown edition Sally Holman – Seona Myerscough – 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 three 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 and Sally are local artists and Seona is the interloper.
Sally , 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 , Sally’s escapist worlds have provided a bitter sweet relief, able to travel in mind but not in reality, and Seona’s dreams and thoughts have left the night and entered the day.

Spot The Artist Viewing on Friday and Saturday, 17th and 18th September 10am-4pm, Sale on Sunday the 19th 9am-2pm
St Ives Rotary Club’s annual Spot The Artist charity art sale will again take place at Porthmeor Studios on the middle weekend of the Festival with around 400 paintings – signed on the back by the artists – available to buy for a bargain £50 each.
The keenest art bargain hunters queue overnight in Back Road West to snap up the best offerings from a talented array of local and national artists. Sport The Artists has raised many thousands of pounds for both local arts and Rotary charities over the years.
