There and Back
Pack your imaginary suitcases and join us for an artistic journey around the world! We begin in Falmouth and explore the town’s role as a hub for international shipping and travel. From there we set sail with favourites from the Falmouth Art Gallery Collection as they navigate the globe. Some made journeys of exploration, others wanted to sell their art further afield and a few made the decision to relocate; but they all captured the beauty and diversity of different countries and cultures through their artwork.
17 May – 17 July
In Her Shoes
Explore views of our world from Falmouth to afar by stepping into the shoes of the female artists who have depicted it. This exhibition is inspired by our popular ‘In Her Shoes’ 30 day art challenge on Instagram during the BENOW Festival. It showcases the artworks and stories of the female artists in the Falmouth Art Gallery Collection and responses created by the public.
Curated by Trainee Curator Eve Swanson.
11 June – 11 September
A celebration of invention and innovation in Falmouth past and present, plus some jolly clever things from other parts of Cornwall. This eclectic and fun filled exhibition features an assortment of artworks, archival documents and objects that will fascinate all ages. Come along and marvel at the inventions of the Fox family, put some crazy automata in action and be awe struck by the amazing innovations that are being developed right here, right now.
This exhibition will be accompanied by a series of talks, workshops and events being held at the Princess Pavilions and the Council Chamber in the Municipal Buildings.
