RAY ATKINS - A Painter's Odyssey

23rd June to 8th July 2024



22nd May to 17th June 2024

A mixed exhibition of works by a selection of mainly Modern British artists, chosen to coincide with the season. May/June is a beautiful time in Cornwall, and a great time visit us here in the countryside just outside St Ives, to view high quality works of art in a relaxed, welcoming setting with plenty of free parking.

Opening times: Tues - Sat, 11 - 4pm

Includes works by W. Barns-Graham, Sven Berlin, Bob Bourne, Michael Canney, Dennis Creffield, Tom Cross, Alan Davie, Clifford Fishwick, Anthony Fry, Hilda Goldwag, Patrick Hayman, Michael Finn, Anthony Frost, Terry Frost, Barbara Hepworth, Patrick Heron, Roger Hilton, Jane Mac Miadhachain, Padraig Mac Miadhachain, Margo Maeckelberghe, Antoni Malinowski, Ben Nicholson, Kate Nicholson, Jane O'Malley, Bryan Pearce, John Piper, Brian Rice, Graham Rich, William Scott, Keith Vaughan and Karl Weschke.

Our next show is an exhibition of paintings and drawings by artist Ray Atkins, coinciding with the publication of a new 160 page monograph about the artist's life and work, written by Peter Davies with a foreword by Frank Auerbach, and published by Sansom & Co. We will be exhibiting a group of 20 paintings and drawings spanning 1972 - 2018. Much of the work was painted plein air and at scale and will make for a  very striking presentation.

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 and Dominica Williamson.
