Tall Ships

05 Jul 2014 - 20 Sep 2014


This exhibition marks the arrival on 28th August of the Tall Ships regatta to Falmouth. These ships have given artists a wealth of subject matter for generations. We are celebrating with the finest nautical paintings from the town's collection and contributions from well-known local artists.


Come and pay us a visit and view our new acquisition by Charles Napier Hemy. The painting depicts Falmouth oyster fishermen at work on the Carrick Roads. It will be on display for the duration of the Tall Ships exhibition.
