West Meets West Discovery Box Creation
22 May – 3 June 2017
Discovery Box available 3 June to 8 July 2017
West Meets West is an exhibition of the work of three leading artists from the west of Cornwall, Philip Booth, Matthew Lanyon and Tony Lattimer. Philip Booth is based in Lamorna and produces inventive multi-media constructions, often dramatically geometrical. Matthew Lanyon who sadly passed away late last year, was a son of Peter Lanyon, one of the most influential artists of the St Ives School. Matthew lived at the end of a remote lane in West Penwith and there produced enormous works in paint and in laminated glass. Tony Lattimer is a sculptor who lives in Penzance. His large works are made using a coiling technique and are fired in his own constructed kilns on his holding close to The Land’s End.
Discovery Box is a free gallery resource for parents and carers to use with their young children in the gallery to encourage engagement with the artwork.
West Cork Arts Centre commissions guest artists to develop explorations for children and families to investigate and respond to exhibitions in the gallery using a variety of tools, art materials and information sheets.
WCAC acknowledges the financial support of the Arts Council and Cork County Council in making these residencies possible.
