‘ Encased in a new silence’ on show at Tremenheere Gallery
10 October to 1 November 2020. Tues-Sat 10-4pm (check times)
The Edge of Dark show at Tremenheere Gallery is a fantastic installation of work by Curator Jesse Leroy Smith of work by Newlyn Society of Artists. An exhibition of paintings, drawings, sculptures and installations which explore ideas of light and dark, curator Jesse Leroy Smith says ‘
“The title was provocative enough last year [when it was originally posed, before the pandemic], it felt like so much was changing. Now it seems we are in the darkest days, but that is when resilience, camaraderie and hope are forged. One reason I am excited to curate this show is because it was conceived before 2020. It can address the foreboding challenges we face in every aspect of our futures, not with rhetoric and ideologies but with crayons to paper, ink to plaster. The show will be poor in cynicism and rich in wonder.”
This exhibition is the latest in a must-see programme by West Cornwall’s historic Newlyn Society of Artists. Admission to the gallery is free.
