What’s on in Cornwall in January 2020


CWL WEB - MONTH - Credit: Archant

Our guide to the best events in and around Cornwall, this month it’s all about winter outings!

Ends 26 January


Cornwall and its varied landscapes are the focus of a contemporary art exhibition at the Eden Project which showcases the work of 15 artists who have worked in or are deeply connected to Cornwall, exploring the many layers of the county's social and environmental surroundings.

The Eden Project is the perfect backdrop for this show which highlights the changes in Cornwall's natural environment through signs of human activity and industry - the site near St Austell demonstrates how a barren landscape can be transformed into a haven for plant life and community.

Most of the artists involved in this exhibition collaborated with experts from other fields such as scientists, geologists, historians and musicians to expand their understanding and in some cases, to create their works.

A Sharp Pencil: Falmouth Art Gallery

The super sharp pencil used by Falmouth-based artist Patrick Woodroffe is the inspiration behind this celebration of all forms of drawing. Patrick's highly detailed drawings will be displayed alongside those by his friend, Peter Markey, who shared Patrick's quirky sense of humour but developed his own distinctive drawing style. These works will be displayed alongside pencil masterpieces drawn from Falmouth's collection and loaned by contemporary artists.

Wood to Water by James Dodds

Inspired by small boats from the South West, James Dodds masterfully represents this subject in both paintings and limited-edition linocut prints. New work includes one of the largest paintings he has ever undertaken. It depicts a Falmouth pilot cutter and at over seven meters wide it is a striking abstract artwork of deep blue tones.
