Over a year ago the CERES secretariat noticed that the European Commissions' Jean Monnet House was hosting a sequence of European-related art exhibitions. An off-the-cuff remark about a Cornish exhibition was met with surprising enthusiasm and so an organising team was created.

During February the London offices of the European Commission, in association with the Gorsedh of Cornwall and CERES (the Centre for European Research within Cornwall), will host an exhibition of paintings by contemporary Cornish artists living and working in the Duchy. The work of nine artists will be represented and the event will mark a notable Cornish occasion, enabling aspects of Cornwall's art to be made known to an internationally-based public.

The exhibition will be opened by Cornwall's Grand Bard, Mrs Venessa Beeman, at a private viewing and reception at Jean Monnet House, 8 Storey's Gate, Westminster (Tube: St James's Park) on the evening of Tuesday 3 February. This will be followed by open days on Wednesday? Thursday and Friday of that week, and on Monday to Friday of the week thereafter.

Artists whose work will be exhibited include

Clive Carter

Anthony Frost

Francis Hewlett

Ashley Hold

Robert Jones

Andrew Lanyon

Margot Maeckelburghe

Mary Martin

Louise McClary

This is a great chance to raise Cornwall's profile just that extra notch more so please do help in circulating this information to all who may be interested.
