In 2014, a 75 metre mural created by Artists Vicki Gillow and Juliet Walshe for Falmouth Docks was unveiled. This exhibition contains work in a variety of mediums created by both artists prior to the mural and since it was completed, including a short film and slideshow documenting the progression of the mural.

About

The Mural, Falmouth Docks
As you look at the mural, unconventionally, the narrative starts on the far right with the cliff, industrial waterways, the Docks and the workers going about their daily business. The artists invite the audience to venture beyond the docks into the estuary and sea on the left side of the painting, highlighting the contrast between the dockyard and space – the man-made and elemental.

There are similar underlying themes in Vicki’s and Juliet’s work which can be seen both in the mural and in their individual work. The exhibition opens on Tuesday 24 February 2015, with a Private View in the evening and is open the public until Monday 2 March.

Vicki is a Falmouth painter, illustrator and teacher and obtained an MA in Authorial Illustration from Falmouth University in 2013. Juliet, originally from Hertfordshire, moved down from London to Falmouth in 2011 and graduated with an MA in Fine Art in 2012.

Vicki Gillow and Juliet Walshe started working together when they collaborated on a large mural, commissioned by A&P and Falmouth Art Gallery and installed in August 2014 at Falmouth Docks. Since completing the mural, the artists have continued to collaborate on a range of work inspired by water and the coast.

Vicki and Juliet hope to continue collaborating and exhibiting work together in the future.
