A unique exhibition of work by earlier members of The London Group with a strong St Ives association, as well as several artists selected from the rich history of The London Group whose work has been represented in exhibitions of Modern British Art at the Belgrave Gallery, London since its opening in 1974.
Showing concurrently is an exhibition called 'The London Group at St Ives' at the Penwith Gallery, St Ives. This show will exhibit current members of the group. Full colour catalogues are available on request for both shows, and you can access them digitally below.
The British Art Fair: Belgrave St Ives will be exhibiting a selection of work by leading St Ives Modern Artists including a major sculpture by Barbara Hepworth, showing at stands 36 and 38 on the second floor of the Saatchi Gallery, King’s Road, London 20 - 23 September.
The Belgrave Gallery (London) joined the fair at its inception in 1988 (variously named but in most recent years the 20/21 British Art Fair). Belgrave St Ives is delighted to take part in the 2018 re-launch under new management and at this fabulous new location. Invitations will be sent to gallery clients and interested parties - we hope to see you there.
Our next gallery exhibition (8 - 29 Oct) is JESSICA COOPER - The Intimate Landscape. This new collection of 35 paintings is inspired by two separate yet distinctly parallel landscapes - St Ives in Jessica Cooper's home county of Cornwall, and the village of Messanges in South West France - both of which have special meaning to the artist. Similar in their coastal beauty, with wide white sands, simple architecture and laid back coastal culture, the essence of these two villages are defined on canvas in Cooper’s distinctively reductive style.
The Gallery Blog is a rich resource of images and background information covering the gallery's ongoing exhibition programme, where you will find installation images, biographical detail and more about current and previous shows. Follow other gallery news on Twitter and Facebook.
Belgrave St Ives specialises in Modern British and Contemporary Art. There is an emphasis on work by artists associated with Cornwall from the 1930s to the present time. The gallery is the only private art gallery in Cornwall showing regular exhibitions of work by major artists associated with the St Ives Modern Period as well as exhibitions of works by other select Modern British and Contemporary Artists. The gallery works with a number of artists, artists’ estates, collectors and other galleries, to produce an annual programme of changing monthly one-person and themed exhibitions usually accompanied by published material.
Located in the heart of historic and picturesque St Ives, the gallery is situated very close to the Barbara Hepworth Museum. Opened in 1998 as sister gallery to Belgrave Gallery (est. London 1974), the St Ives gallery became independent in 2010. The gallery aims to present exhibitions in an informative and friendly manner and the staff are always happy to discuss all aspects of art on display. In addition to gallery exhibitions, Belgrave St Ives has an active online presence (website, blog, Facebook) and holds a large inventory of art not on show that can easily be arranged for viewing by interested visitors.
