Spring time In Cornwall is bursting with new life, evoking feelings of optimism and boosting our mood and energy levels. Time For Change taps into that energy, with many new pieces exhibited for the first time, by well-known and well-loved artists such as Alice Mumford, Richard Sorrell, Abigail Brown, Louise McClary, Tamsyn Trevorrow, Catherine Hyde, Debbie Prosser, Andrew Lanyon, Tony Mills and Sarah Drew as well as introducing exciting new artists. The preview on Saturday 1st April 14:00 – 18:00 will be an exceptional opportunity to meet some of the artists and buy something truly inspirational!

The exhibition sees artists exploring Change in all meanings; in the use of materials, styles and in the seasons, environment and politics. It is the first collaboration from West Cornwall Creatives, a collective of over 40 artists that came into being to support the campaigning funds of St Ives Liberal Democrats, with a sense that politically, socially and environmentally, it was a Time for Change. Many local creatives were already supporters of St Ives Liberal Democrats and, as the idea of an exhibition to benefit the local party grew, so did the number of creatives that wanted to be part of it.

Artist and one of the founders, Alice Mumford, is delighted with the show’s concept: “Cornish Creatives have come together to help make a positive difference. Our aim is to help support the local Liberal Democrats to bring about a new political outlook in West Cornwall.”

Artist and co-curator Richard Sorrell said “I am delighted to be taking part in this exhibition which will bring together works by distinguished artists working in west Cornwall and I very much look forward to the opening. The show is welcome diversion from the difficult and challenging times that we face socially, politically, economically and environmentally. This is the time for change.”
