Yew Tree Gallery


a Summer Exhibition at

Yew Tree Gallery

until the end of July

Curated by Miranda Leonard of The Restless Gallery, ‘In Arcadia’ grows from the concept of rural bliss created in two and three dimensions.  Through their work, the artists reveal imagined world and landscapes.

MELVYN EVANS’ expressive lino-cuts smack of safe havens and desirable retreats

Mosaic birds by EMILY BAINBRIDGE grace the stone walls;  BAILEY CURTIS’s felt lettering panels are suspended from trees; jewellery by RITA SERES and CAROLINE PARROTT fill the glass cabinets and outside in the courtyard and both sculpture gardens are HELEN NOCK’s unique inlaid Cornish slate tables and dramatic ‘standing stones’ reflecting the sun through their glass inlay.

The exhibition is open Tuesdays to Saturdays from 10.30am to 5pm.  More images and details can be seen on www.therestlessgallery.co.uk

Gilly’s next exhibition at the gallery is ‘WILD SHORES, CALM HAVENS’, opening on 9th September – with an extra flourish from 14 – 17th September at BREEZE Art Fair, Trereife House, Penzance.

Gilly is also responsible for Carolyn White’s archival collection of paintings
(see www.carolynwhiteartist.co.uk)
which has just been updated to include previously unseen work.

YEW TREE GALLERY, on the West coast of Cornwall, is set among fields and gardens facing the broad Atlantic against a backdrop of the ancient moors of Penwith. The village of Morvah lies about a mile away, with the erstwhile mining community of Pendeen and Botallack to the west.

The gallery buildings nestle into the landscape at Keigwin, a farming hamlet on the B3306 coast road between St Ives and St Just. Exhibitions are held from Easter to the end of October, curated by Gilly Wyatt Smith who previously ran Yew Tree Gallery in Derbyshire then Gloucestershire for 30 years.

Many of the exhibitions follow a theme that links us to our environment – both particular to this place but also embracing the wider realm of the planet.

Nationally respected artists living in Cornwall and beyond are selected for solo and themed exhibitions. Throughout the gallery’s history, emphasis has been on showing work of the highest calibre in a variety of disciplines – painting, sculpture, ceramics, glass, textiles, wood or jewellery.

Visitors to the gallery are invited to wander through the sculpture gardens and organic potager with its wildlife pond, enjoy the views as well as the works of art and perhaps linger for a coffee or tea and freshly baked biscuit at our converted ‘Potting Shed’ kitchen. Plants, herbs and saladings are for sale too (when crops are abundant) and our free-range hens lay delicious large eggs!
