Fading Light Alice Mumford
Fading Light, Porthmeor Beach, St Ives, by Alice Mumford

Belgrave St Ives
11th September-4th October
Alice Mumford: Paintings for Autumn 2021. This follows on from the highly popular exhibition held by Belgrave St Ives earlier in the year, Alice Mumford, Paintings for Spring. This new show continues the seasonal theme. The painterly nature and sensitively observed colour of the paintings included in this exhibition will evoke feelings of warmth and richness, particularly appropriate during the gradually shortening days of early autumn.
11th September-4th October
Wilhelmina Barns-Graham: Selected Works 1951-2004. An exhibition of work in various media by one of the leading members of the St Ives group of Modernists — artists whot coalesced in and around St Ives during and immediately after the second world war. The paintings, drawings, and prints selected demonstrate the artist’s unique vision and dexterity in handling different materials, with a particular emphasis on her exceptional drawing skills.
