A group exhibition featuring five South West artists and showcasing independent homeware pieces.
Marking new gallery Morgan’s fifth exhibition since it opened in Falmouth, Cornwall, only in April this year, Show No. 5 comprises a mix of painters, ceramicists, and makers.
Featuring the works of Falmouth based painter Martha Holmes, who will exhibit 50 new landscape pieces that capture the essence of the Cornish coastline; Felicity Mara, a painter based at the historic Porthmeor Studios, St Ives, who will show huge abstract works on canvas; potter Tor Harrison’s new ceramic collection using traditional techniques; Julia Florence, whose studio is located upstairs at Morgans, and whose large scale decorative pieces are inspired by a love of nature, bodies and clay itself; and a selection of drinkware and tableware by Feldspar who incorporate heritage processes and local materials from a workshop in rural Devon.
Newly accompanying this exhibition will be the ‘Store’ collection located in the lower gallery space offering smaller pieces by independent makers and artists to purchase.
With an emphasis now on ‘tableware’, Morgans has curated a selection of works which include textured small-batch stoneware mugs by East London ceramics studio, Brutes; Derbyshire based artist Jan O’Neill’s sculptural stoneware bowls; stonemason Theo Brogan’s minimalist stone spoons; a series of vibrant still life collographs, monographs and small paintings on board by Penzance artist Sophie Harding; and a collection of beautifully tactile ceramic ‘ritual’ cups by artist Jaye Tayler and her studio, Argilo. To accompany these artists’ work will be a selection of art and design journals offering further aesthetic inspiration.
Show No. 5 once again reflects the broad range of artists and makers Morgans seeks to present in the unparalleled setting of its beautiful transformed space in the centre of Falmouth.
