Yesterday we popped into the Crypt Gallery in St Ives to see the wonderful 'Sea Journal' exhibition by Lisa Woollett. This is only on until this Friday 26th August so you've got to be quick!
We were already familiar with Lisa's work as I had bought Tim the 'Sea & Shore Cornwall' book a while ago....this fabulous exhibition features images from the latest publication 'Sea Journal' - stunning photography & lots of interesting information...We are really looking forward to reading it & expanding our knowledge of the creatures that live on our shores
Lisa is stewarding the show herself so is on hand to talk about her work - it really is a joy to see her collections of shoreline finds...the little cabinets & framed pieces are right up our street!
After seeing the show we actually felt really inspired to showcase some of our own beach finds (of which there are many...) & as luck would have it we located a lovely little Indian cabinet in a local shop. This was put up today & now includes some special finds...the plan is to change the pieces once a month & theme them depending on the time of year (this is the theory anyway...we'll see!?)
Our very own 'Cabinet of Collections'
The Crypt Gallery is just off the harbour behind the Sloop & underneath the Mariners Gallery. Open 11am - 5pm this week
