Virtual Gallery Project

The Fish Factory has now launched its Virtual Gallery Project - which is an exhibition space embedded within our website. This project enables artists to showcase their work within our art-space remotely. The software was developed by KUNSTMATRIX and is employed by the Fish Factory within our website. We can now collaborate and facilitate projects nationally and internationally, which means that visiting artists, local artists, all members of the Fish community will be able to hold exhibitions within our digital space.

This is a group exhibition by the alumni of Penryn English Literature. We were inspired to collaborate when we heard news that Exeter may cease the English Literature course in Cornwall. We have not only studied literature, all of us have been inspired by the artists of Falmouth University and have become poets and artists ourselves. To deprive future students of the ocean, creativity and collaboration would be a loss to the humanities and to the arts in Cornwall. We would like to thank the Fish Factory Arts Space for supporting us with a digital platform. The Fish Factory is an arts space and gallery in Penryn which co-ordinates a summer internship placement with Exeter-Penryn via the extra-curricular programme Pathways to Culture, Arts and Heritage.
