Sheila Oliner 1930 – 2020

We are very sorry to report that Sheila Oliner, painter, printmaker, teacher and personal friend for 26 years has died in London, on April 20th, aged 89.

Born and educated in London she moved to Cornwall in 1985 where she had a studio in St. Ives and lived in the village of Zennor. Sheila was always generous with her time and expertise. She helped raise substantial sums of money for the new Tate St Ives and set up the open access Porthmeor Printmakers’ Workshop in St. Ives as a professional resource for the general public and the West Penwith art community.

Her popular prints have been a mainstay of the gallery for thirteen years.
We will miss her.

Ander Gunn – Photographs

We are delighted to have received an unprecedented number of Ander Gunn’s limited edition photographs. A few have been seen in the gallery in the past but some have never been exhibited or printed before and are on show in Battersea now.

Perspective Exhibition

Wednesday 7 November – Sunday 2 December
Petronilla Silver was once more invited to curate an exhibition at Eight Holland Street, with an exciting mix of five artists experimenting with their chosen medium.

Where Art Meets Craft at 8 Holland Street

Wednesday 6 June – Sunday 1 July 2018
In Petronilla Silver's first show at 8 Holland Street were Mick Arnold (porcelain tableware), Anthony Bryant (wood vessels), Stephen Chambers RA (paintings and prints), Melanie Georgacopoulos (jewellery), Ander Gunn (photographs).

Nicola Bealing group of works

We are delighted to have a new group of work by Nicola Bealing that can be viewed by appointment. Her works are highly imaginative and address psychological concerns: “bold and painterly in their handling, the abstracting qualities of light and colour are not the override preoccupations of her work.”

Stephen Chambers R.A. Beneath the Golden Tree Monotypes

Some of Stephen Chambers’ monotypes made especially for our exhibition at Tremenheere are still available and can be seen in London. The Tremenheere exhibition coincided with his spectacular installation The Court of Redonda in Venice which was a Collateral Event of the Venice Biennale.
