The exhibition will showcase selected works by 8 guest artists who are exhibiting for the first time in St Ives, including Gordon Ellis-Brown's series Wish You Were Here.


Gordon Ellis-Brown’s 'Wish You Were Here' series will be featured in the forthcoming exhibition ‘Ten Years On - Showing Off’ at Porthminster Gallery, St Ives. The exhibition will showcase selected works by 8 guest artists who are exhibiting for the first time in St Ives. The ‘Wish You Were Here’ series brings a new perspective to classic seaside images from the 60s and 70s, revealing the hidden and often overlooked narratives of holiday life, while retaining the original charm and humour that characterises the great British get-away. Capturing elements from old postcards created from mechanical printing processes, Gordon amplifies the natural print imperfections, bringing microcosms of holiday life into full view, presented with classic hotelier phrases from that era. These fascinating works touch on a yearning for nostalgia as the viewer engages with the subjects on an emotional and often intimate level. Porthminster Gallery at Westcott's Quay in St Ives, Cornwall is an award-winning art gallery featuring changing exhibitions and shows of contemporary and modern paintings. original artist prints and sculpture alongside collectable Post-War and Modern Artworks by St Ives, Cornish and British Artists including Peter Blake, Terry Frost, Joan Gillchrest, Barbara Hepworth, Patrick Heron, Roger Hilton, David Hockney, Peter Lanyon, Margaret Lovell, Henry Moore, Ben Nicholson, Victor Pasmore, Alfred Wallis.
