3 new Exhibitions at Falmouth Art Gallery
Cornwall’s Forgotten Art Centre
2 April – 18 June
If you visit Polperro today, you might be completely unaware of its artistic heritage. Described as “the haunt of half the artists of Britain”. Polperro was considered one of Cornwall’s leading art centres during the late 19th and 20th centuries. This will be the first exhibition devoted to Polperro artists.
