The London Group at St Ives

The Group exhibition in St Ives was a great success and one of the Group’s biggest ever shows.

74 members are exhibiting in all types of media, making this one of the biggest shows in the Group’s history. The show ran for a month in the glorious Penwith Gallery to coincide with the yearly St Ives Festival so it should get a good reception in Cornwall. The London Group at St Ives marks the second leg of a house-swap with the Penwith Society of Arts who exhibited at the Cello Factory back in April 2018. In addition at the Belgrave Gallery at the same time is a further show highlighting the historical connections between group members and the area.
