12 monthly depictions of the Barbara Hepworth Sculpture Garden in St Ives, painted one per month, in situ and plein air in the gardens by popular local artist Eric Ward.

About

After leaving school, Eric worked as a fisherman until 1985 when he became St. Ives Harbour Master. In 1964 he joined the RNLI as a St. Ives Lifeboatman, was promoted to Coxswain in 1989 and retired after 34 years of service in 2000. Since then his work has been shown widely, and he has expanded into etching.

In 1996 BBC2 featured Eric's life, 'Oils and Oilskins' on Video Diaries. A year in the making, the programme was acclaimed by The Times. In 2003 Halsgrove published a large-format 144-page book including over 100 paintings in full colour and entitled Eric Ward's St. Ives: From His Studio and Beyond.

Eric has shown with the gallery for a number of years, including several solo exhibitions on various themes including depicting Cornish harbours.
