The World

21 Apr 2012 - 16 Jun 2012

This exhibition has been inspired by a yearlong trip around the world by two Falmouth artists, Anthony and Kate Fagin. It celebrates both Cornwall and the exotic foreign landscapes they visited, including Africa, Australasia, the South Seas, Easter Island, the Galapagos Islands, South and North America.

The paintings, photography and ceramics on display are responses to the great natural events, flora and fauna, human cultures and environmental issues encountered on such a journey. It explores global diversity while at the same time serving as a reminder of the fragility of our planet.

Fagin, Kate (born 1948): Blue-footed boobies - courtship dance, photograph, 30 x 42 cms. Presented by the artist as part of the Heritage Lottery Fund's Darwin 200 celebrations.
