A Touch of the Cornish Coast
It may be hundreds of miles away but Gaolyard Studios are bring a touch of the Cornish coast to northern Lincolnshire in late summer with an exhibition at Barton upon Humber’s Contemporary Art & Craft.
Gaolyard, St Ives – A Special Place pays tribute to the potters of Gaolyard Studios which was set up 11 years ago in a building which was originally a workhouse and a gaol.
The exhibition in Gallery One, which begins on September 11 and ends on October 10, features the work of Gaolyard’s founder, John Bedding, along with Louise Thompson, Amanda Ray, Rebecca Harvey, Trevor Corser, Rick Henham and Sarah Dunstan who held a solo exhibition nearly two years ago.
“There is no Gaolyard house style but there is such a creative atmosphere there,” said The Ropewalk’s Exhibitions Officer, Richard Hatfield, who visited the studio a couple of years ago.
The Ropewalk is open seven days a week, Monday to Saturday from 10am until 5pm, and Sunday and Bank Holidays from 10am to 4pm. Admission is free.
