Henry Garfitt - Henry Garfit is an artist working in the Penwith area of West Cornwall. He makes colourful, abstract paintings and prints working from a wide variety of influences including the St Ives School of the 1950's and 60's (Patrick Heron, Peter Lanyon, Ben Nicholson, Roger Hilton, John Wells, Sandra Blow, Terry Frost, etc) and the Post War Abstract Expressionist Movement
Nick Henshall - The rich tapestry of Nick’s life in Newlyn has added a depth of knowledge and understanding that those merely acting as bystanders are rarely privy to. His art work is inspired by the fishermen, boats and people of Newlyn with whom he has a genuine personal relationship and history.
Glyn Macey - was born in Newlyn, Cornwall in 1969. He completed his HND in Graphic Design at Falmouth School of Art in 1991. Since leaving college, he has lived in Penzance, Cornwall, his work developing in response to the unique environment of West Cornwall.
Using acrylic, mixed media and an array of mark making techniques he endeavours to capture the underlying essence of the landscape, the essence that shapes the landscape and the people who live in it. Many people see a continental look to his paintings. Glyn uses acrylic, pencil and collage to gain the spontaneity of his work and the 'happy accidents' that he loves. By building and glazing colour he is able to gain a rich depth. He believes that the unexpected unity of colour and texture in mixed media can often create the most exciting results.
Stella Rose Benson
Jason Walker - highly regarded for his mature and sensitive portraits and his thoughtful depictions of everyday objects. His approach to painting is accompanied by a command of tonal values and a refined use of colour, which both inform and give a subtle presence to his chosen subject.
