The World as Yet Unseen

06 Apr 2019 - 15 Jun 2019

This exhibition reveals a world both intimate and outward looking seen through the eyes of women artists based in Cornwall and internationally.

At the centre is the visionary work of the artist and writer Partou Zia (1958-2008) who was born in Iran but came to England in 1970, settling in Newlyn in 1993.

Her dream-like canvases will be displayed alongside works by her contemporaries and influential figures including: Gillian Ayres, Wilhemina Barns-Graham, Tacita Dean, Naomi Frears, Barbara Hepworth, Rose Hilton, Nina Royle, Lucy Stein and Winifred Nicholson.
