Newlyn Society of Artists: Engage

1st – 23rd April 2023

Spring exhibition featuring work by the society’s 85 member artists. In the nine months leading up to this exhibition, five NSA members have had the opportunity to work with Professor Tanya Krzywinska, a Research Professor working with Immersive Games and Technologies at Falmouth University. They have been given support to create augmented and virtual reality dimensions to their own work. The resulting work will be shown as part of this exhibition, as well as in the Showcase of Using Augmented and Virtual Reality in Fine Art and Sculpture Context, also at Tremenheere Gallery, in March.

Newlyn Society of Artists members Michelle Ohlson, Andrew Litten, Simon Averill, Kate Walters and Pat Wilson-Smith have been developing pieces of work using Augmented Reality so that while a work might hang on the wall, other versions of it can be seen through a phone app. Kate Walters has also created a piece using Virtual Reality which can be experienced using a headset so that the viewer feels inside the actual work. The phone-based apps for Tremenheere are funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council, and the supporting work with the five NSA artists is part of Falmouth and Exeter Universities’ Immersive Business outreach project, funded by European Regional Development Fund. 

During this exhibition, Tremenheere Gallery will be open Tuesday – Sunday, 11am – 4pm. Closed Mondays – aside from Monday 10th April when the Gallery is open 11am – 4pm. FREE entry. The exhibition will be launched with an opening event – Sat 1st April, 2 – 4pm. All welcome – FREE to attend.
