Beach Hut Culture Update: April 2018
Updated: Mar 7, 2019
Did anyone else blink and miss March? We’re struggling to believe it’s April here, a particularly exciting month for us because we’re on tour!
That’s right, not only can you find us at our humble gallery on Lucius Street at the moment – exhibiting the incredibly talented Cristina Ulander – but we’re also enjoying the stunning surroundings of Cockington Court as we exhibit in their Kitchen Gallery. This gorgeous space is situated at the front of the court overlooking the main green and hosts a range of exciting exhibitions throughout the year including their annual “Pewter Now” show featuring unique and unusual works of local and national pewter artists. We’re feeling very privileged to have been welcomed into the space and to be a part of their 2018 series, so we want to take a quick moment to let you know what’s in store here from us and the rest of Cockington Court this month!
Our exhibition will welcome four artists from our stable: Kirsteen Titchener, a wonderful photographic artist who blurs the lines of reality through skilled photomanipulation and an inspiring imagination; F. G. Davis, a leading contemporary artist known for his pure abstraction and mixed media collage works exhibited internationally; Jo West, the UKs first colour changing resin artist; and Susan Cavaliere, influential Torbay surrealist artist inspired by folklore and mythology. The show runs until the 23rd April during the courts normal hours, and we’ll be bringing you lots of other exciting stories from around the house, grounds and studios.
Elsewhere in the Bay, there’s plenty more cultural activity to be found. We’re fairly sure you won’t have missed the return of Grinagog which is back again for 2018; our top pick here is the sun trap of One World Café which offered incredible laidback vibes last year! Or for those who are looking for something where the volume won’t be turned up to eleven, Torquay Museum will be playing host to the Friends of Devon’s Archives Spring Meeting on April 28th, catering a series of talks which explore a variety of collections from the Museum.
And that’s April in a nutshell! Remember we’ve got loads of other listings on our site art-hub.co.uk so if nothing in our round up has caught your eye, this is the place to head!
