Margaret Beardsmore: Online Exhibition
Welcome to our online exhibition space, this programme enables remote exhibitions. This is Margaret Beardsmore's Memorial Exhibition. It is available within our physical space and we have created this virtual gallery to ensure the artwork is accessible for people at home. We are pleased to announce the exhibition will be available both physically and virtually from the 3rd December 2020. The Fish Factory is open from Thursday to Monday 10am - 5pm. Please note we will be respecting social distancing and masks will be required in the physical space.
Our wonderful studio artist Margaret Beardsmore passed away in May 2020. She was a peaceful and gentle spirit in our community and a committed member of the Fish Factory since its beginning in 2011. A painter at heart, Margaret completed a foundation course for Fine Art at Falmouth University and graduated with her degree in 2005. With vivid and carefully considered work, Margaret enjoyed capturing people lost in the moment, her artwork draws from life and the personal details which emerge when people become immersed within the beauty of everyday.
If you are interested in purchasing any artwork, we have organised a Silent Auction, so please see the attached form. All money raised will be split 50/50 between The Olive Garden Community Cafe and Fish Factory Arts in order to support both organisations. If you request any artwork within the online gallery below we will direct you to the form so you may place your bids. For the full experience, we recommend that you press the "Start Guided Tour" button below, which will take you through Margaret's wonderful work in chronological order, you can also click "Enter Exhibition" and move freely with your cursor.
