This Easter at Tremenheere Gallery, the Newlyn Society of Artists present Ex Libris, an exhibition of selected works that each respond to a chosen piece of writing.
Contributing artists have been invited to submit artwork inspired by a variety of texts, from Shakespearean sonnets or the writings of Plato, to a much-loved poem or passage from a favourite novel. Similarly, artworks may respond to a simple shopping list, text or tweet, or extend to political writings, from new government legislation to controversial newsprint or a pernicious piece of propaganda. A variety of works including drawings, paintings, sculptures and video installations will be displayed beside the artist’s chosen text, giving visitors a fully contextualised account of this, the latest in a regular programme of group exhibitions by West Cornwall’s historic NSA.
