“Over the summer break we’ve had a ‘facelift’. Tom Holland, a local contemporary artist, gave us permission to use one of his artworks as our new headline image. You’ve probably noticed it on the new programme card and website.
The Arts Society Falmouth and Tom’s collaboration is an excellent example of how we engage with our neighbourhood in the promotion of all the arts.
Landscape has been at the centre of Cornish art since the 19th century; Tom’s painting respects that tradition but updates it for the 21st century.
Queen Mary Gardens, Gyllyngvase, Falmouth, was chosen because it communicates not only a sense of place but also how we see ourselves – at the heart of a vibrant, creative community.
To see more of Tom’s work, visit his website www.tom-holland.co.uk, or pop in to his gallery at 29 Higher Market Street, Penryn.
