Gallery Galore!

Penzance is a truly wonderful place for art lovers, art admirers, even just people who like looking a pretty things!

The town caters for every variant of art appreciation, from commercial paintings and sculptures, to delicately beautiful coastal canvases, to down right spectacularly abstract exhibitions.

Being relatively new to the area myself, I thought I'd start with Penzance's biggest and arguably most well known gallery (also a mere two minute walk from AR Penzance) - The Exchange.

The Exchange is settled on Princes Street and dominates the area brilliantly with its towering, glow by night glass architecture.  The gallery itself is predominantly used for exhibitions, and the focus that I viewed today was nothing short of fascinating!

On show was a group exhibition by ten international artists, called "The Future's Not What It Used To Be"

The Artists use painting, sculptures, print and photograph to delve into the ever changing perspectives of past present and Future.

I was kindly allowed to wander through the Gallery by Blair Todd, the Exchange director.  I even got the chance to take a few cheeky snapshots!

The artists who worked on this collective are Patricia Picinini, Vernon Ah Kee, Tony Albert, Matt Bryans, Tony Albert and Jeremy Millar.

Each artist in their own unique way strives to emphasise the multiple perspectives of past, present and future from all over the world...

The exhibit is running until 13th April 2013, so if it sounds like your cup of tea, get a riggle on!
