Ben Baker is a Falmouth based artist inspired by the south-west coast and his career as a boat builder. By using iron wire, Ben transforms his intricate line drawings into a three-dimensional, illustrative style of sculpture.
These pieces of wirework are interactive, utilising mechanisms so the viewer can simply turn a handle and the sculpture will begin to move. Ben Baker experiments with playfulness, yet his pieces stay grounded to the coastal communities from which he drew inspiration, often pairing sculpture with found and reclaimed timber.

We are saddened to say our wonderful studio artist Margaret Beardsmore passed away in May 2020. She was a peaceful and gentle spirit in our community 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.
You will also have access the online exhibition and be able to participate in the silent auction.

Fingers-crossed, lockdown will be lifted and you can come and join us for some fab live music again. This will be a really good one with Megbite and Genghis Cohn.
As usual in the covid society we ask that you wear a mask on your arrival, scan in on the QR track and trace or leave some details for us and stay with the people you arrive with. It's going to be table service for drinks and food.
If tickets are sold out or you are nervous about coming to the space feel free to book yourself a slot to watch online via zoom.
We're doing this a little differently this year and inviting sellers to leave their shop in our gallery for a whole week!
This means a safer and more relaxed browsing environment for all. The fair will take place every day from 10th - 14th December from 10am - 5pm and will showcase a few of our local artists and craftspeople alongside the Margaret Beardsmore exhibition and the usual items for sale in our Shop.
Please note that we will be following government guidelines, social distancing measures will be in place and masks will be required.
