Jamaican Connections

06 Jul 2015 - 03 Aug 2015

This exhibition showcases the links between Falmouth and the Caribbean island of Jamaica, 5,000 miles away. As well as sharing Falmouth's name for one of its parishes, Jamaica was also host to the artist Henry Scott Tuke.

In 1923 Tuke embarked upon a trip to Jamaica, spending many months painting water colours of boats, figures and landscapes.He was based in  Black River the capital of St Elizabeth Parish, and the show begins with landscapes of this town.

Work on show will also include paintings by Jamaica's most celebrated living artist, Barrington Watson, alongside a selection from Jamaica's eclectic art scene.
