BOB BOURNE - A Celebration

BOB BOURNE - A Celebration

15th October to 8th November 2021

The new Belgrave Studio and gallery display spaces are open for viewing of artworks. Please contact us to make an appointment.

We also continue to operate online, so you are most welcome to call or email us and we shall be happy to help you. We are able to pack and send purchased works in the usual way via our couriers and art movers.

Belgrave St Ives warmly invites you to explore our new exhibition, a celebration of what would have been Bob Bourne's 90th birthday. The show includes many excellent examples of the distinctive landscapes and interiors that exemplify Bob's long and productive life in painting.

‘Bob Bourne is a natural painter: an artist with an instinctive feel for making a picture, for the orchestration of line and colour... he is unafraid of vibrant colour – that is one of his gifts. It irradiates his paintings and makes them sing.’ - Andrew Lambirth

‘Painting to me is a form of controlled breathing. The act of creation is an endeavour to penetrate to the deepest level of understanding in the inner being. It has always been the truest way to communicate with the mystic soul.’ - Bob Bourne

Please contact us if you would like to view the exhibition in person. View all works in the exhibition using our website. Larger high resolution images are always available on request.

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, with 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. Belgrave St Ives works with a number of artists, artists’ estates, collectors and galleries, to produce a programme of changing one-person and themed exhibitions.

For 22 years Belgrave St Ives was located in the heart of historic and picturesque St Ives, and is now operating online to focus on its core activities and to work more closely with individual clients and artists.

Opened in 1998 as sister gallery to Belgrave Gallery (est. London 1974), the gallery became independent in 2010. Belgrave St Ives aims to present exhibitions in an informative and friendly manner and the team are always happy to discuss all aspects of the art we deal in.

Gallery team: Michael Gaca (Director), Richard Blackborow, Dominica Williamson and Teagan Pharoah-Green.
