Art - Falmouth:

Meeting every Monday at the Athenaeum Club, Kimberley Park, Falmouth TR11 3QL between 1:30 - 3:30pm.

The Falmouth Art Group goes from strength to strength.  At the last count there were twenty members, most of whom attend weekly, apart from the school holidays.  In fact, we could say we are full for the time being and will start a ‘waiting list’.
            It is a huge privilege to be allowed to meet in the house that was built as Charles Napier Hemy’s family home, which is now the Athenaeum Club in Falmouth.  The light is amazing.
            There are some extremely talented artists in the group and it is rewarding to notice how others improve and grow in confidence.  Last year we held an exhibition in the Methodist Church foyer and hope to do so again this year.
            Above all, we have fun!

At our February meeting Laurence Smith returned to continue his discourse on Pieter Bruegel, the Elder. This time he introduced us to a lesser known area of Bruegel’s oeuvre, his etchings and prints. It was interesting to see   the artist’s pioneering techniques such as extending the picture outside the frame and his use of cropping some 300 years before the Impressionists began using it. Laurence also showed us some of his own paintings he had produced from these etchings. If you wish to study these in more detail you can visit Laurence’s website at

On Thursday March 1st Lesley Cope will be looking at the life and varied works of David Hockney, one of the most popular and influential artists of our time.

Looking ahead to April 5th Malcolm Clark will be speaking on the subject of Mary Cassatt.

The group has an extensive catalogue of resources created by the late Bob Jeary, which continue to provide us with excellent material for talks. Mostly these are on DVDs, often with accompanying written texts. But we also have a number of VHS tapes with enigmatic titles like 'Skelton at 70'. VHS tapes have all but died out, but some wise soul may have bought the bits of equipment in anticipation to covert their own collection. We would very much like to convert these VHS tapes to digital format so that we might use them in the future. If you are out there, wise soul, would you be prepared to convert our tapes?
