In recognition of Newlyn’s history of ‘plein air’ painting more than 50 of West Cornwall’s most exciting artists will leave their studios and spend a day working outdoors in and around Newlyn and Penzance, including at Newlyn Filmhouse, Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens, The Old Coastguard, The Gurnard’s Head Inn, Jubilee Pool and on-board Scillonian III.
By 7.30pm the works - a spontaneous snapshot of a West Penwith day - will be hung in the upper gallery ready to be auctioned. The Wet Auction, like the day, will be fast moving and fun; with music, food from Little Wonder Café and the Studio Café bar open. Viewing from 6.30pm.
All proceeds will be matched and doubled with help from Catalyst: Evolve and support young artists in the region.
