British Impressionists ...and some automata
25 Jun 2011 - 10 Sep 2011
The exhibition will show that the tradition of impressionism is still strong today, and will include work by major contemporary Cornwall-based artists today such as Ted Dyer, Robert Jones, Andrew Tozer and Ben Warner.
Displayed alongside will be masterpieces by Falmouth's automata makers. These are bound to make a good impression!
