Challenges and Opportunities

It's that time of the year again! If we were living in a 'normal' situation we would have been spending the last few weeks organising one of the most iconic event of the year for Falmouth: the TEA FESTIVAL! For obvious reason we are not able to run it, but we would like to offer an alternative experience to celebrate all things 'tea'. So, put the kettle on, discover what we have prepared for you

We are creating a digital archive of creativity in Falmouth. A collection of work to show future generations what life was like and how we dealt with Lockdown through our art. Be that gardening, photography, drawing, painting or anything else creative. Has creativity helped you feel better, stay connected to yourself, to nature or to others? Please share with us. We will feature a selection in our online gallery and a community exhibition once we reopen. Take a photo of your favourite lockdown work along with a few words and share it with us. email learning@falmouthartgallery.com or share through social media using #falculture Visit the online

You’ll be invited to join the closed Facebook group, where you can upload pictures of your plants, ask for advice and see how other people’s sunflowers are growing. The winner will be the person who has grown the tallest sunflower, after verification, by the closing date

Julian Dyson (1936-2003): Spotted dog, signed and dated 2003, ink. 5 minutes to spare? Want to improve your drawing skills and observation? Do a line drawing of your pet, or other creature using Julian Dyson's work above for inspiration. Line drawings are great because they are quick and often capture the energy of the subject you are drawing. A line drawing emphasizes form and outline over colour, shading, and texture. Give it a go and share your work with us.
