The Entrance Gallery, Falmouth Art Gallery

10 Sep 2016 - 19 Nov 2016

Nationally renowned print makers and artists Jesse Smith and Bernard Irwin present 10 evocative copper etchings created across the ten areas of the World Heritage Site.
 
Running in conjunction with the gallery’s Press Gang exhibition Picturing the Mines was commissioned as part of the Tinth (tenth) Anniversary celebrations of the Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape World Heritage Site, and is the result of Jesse and Bernard’s experiences with the public over the summer in mapping the layered histories of our globally important mining heritage.
 
Picturing the Mines is on display until 19 November and for more information, please visit the Picturing the Mines blog at: https://picturingthemines.wordpress.com, and the website of the Falmouth Art Gallery here
