The Twelve days

Catherines first solo show with us was in 2005, called Dreams of the Twelfth Moon and was an unforgettable, magical collection of work.

Shelley Anderson

21 September - 21 October 2017

Lighthouse Gallery will be exhibiting unique new work by Cornish master craftsman and bronze sculptor Shelley Anderson. Born and bred in the industrial fishing port of Newlyn and trained in silversmithing and metal fabrication, Anderson’s extraordinary sculpture is the embodiment of Newlyn’s maritime culture and prestigious metalworking heritage.

Shelley has recently embarked on the creation of large scale works, still working closely with organic shapes, textures and finishes inspired the environment of West Cornwall. Leading the exhibition will be six specially created, low relief 1.5 metre square bronze wall panels, which demonstrate Anderson’s innovative metalworking techniques. Accompanying these works is a selection of beautifully crafted figurative and semi-figurative sculptures of the sea creatures which define the artist’s passion for the West Cornwall landscape he was raised in.


Mark Preston
Capturing the Light

Wild flowers, hedgerows, clouds racing across a sublime sky and the luminescence of light on the sea all feature in Marks work. An en plein air painter who leaves the studio behind to paint on the cliffs and coastal paths surrounding our beautiful peninsula.
