Ammeth: Farming in Cornwall

06 Jul 2024 - 05 Oct 2024

Join us down on the farm this summer as we use art to explore stories and issues from one of Cornwall’s most important industries.  Over 70% of land in the county is farmed and the relationship between farming and the landscape has been a continuing source of inspiration for local artists.  This exhibition examines how farming is depicted in historic and contemporary art, reflecting on environmental concerns and celebrating Cornwall’s rich farming tradition and the positive impact of regenerative farming methods and sustainable food production.   Featuring loans from Penlee House Gallery & Museum and a new commission in celebration of soil by Georgia Gendall.
