The Art School: Group Show

21st September - 11th October 2017

The Art School: Group Show

Established in Falmouth in 1989, the Beside The Wave galleries have always been in the perfect position to keep a close eye on the impressive talent coming out of the town's acclaimed specialist arts university. A key player in the national and international creative scene, Falmouth University was founded in 1902 as the Falmouth School of Art, developing then into Falmouth College of Art and Design until it received university status. Through its history, the school has received support from leading artists such as Dame Barbara Hepworth, worked with renowned artists as lecturers such as Peter Lanyon and Terry Frost and produced award-winning alumni including Turner-prize nominee Tacita Dean.

Celebrating our artists' connection to the acclaimed Falmouth University; after the success of Beside The Wave London's show in 2015, we have made the exhibition even bigger and it will be hosted across both our galleries at the same time. The exhibition features eighteen painters and two ceramists that have graduated from Falmouth University, in its various stages, over the last six decades, including: the highly acclaimed Cornish artist Robert Jones who graduated from the Falmouth School of Art in 1964, award-winning painter Danny Markey who studied there for his Foundation Diploma in 1983 - 84; and the notable emerging artist Jon Doran who graduated with a first-class degree in Fine Art in 2014.

One third of the Beside The Wave's represented artists studied at Falmouth University and the group is added to with work by three new artists to the gallery, current university student Megan Fatharly and recent graduates Brom Irwin and Kitty Hillier.

Studying at Falmouth school of art was heaven; walking through the Rosehill gardens everyday, immersing myself in the Woodlane library of literacy treasures, being surrounded by amazing coastline all fuelled me with inspiration to paint. I was very lucky to have a tutor that I really clicked with, and going on to win at the Midas award at the end of my BA Hons was the head start that launched my career. I look back at my time in Falmouth with very fond memories. - Amy Albright

I was at Falmoulth Uni from 2012 - 2015. I finished with a first degree in Sport wear design. This degree was so diverse and creative, I infused my artwork into my designs and did my final collection in skiwear and fused my painting into the fabrics. I found Falmouth a very inspiring place to study. Having previously studied at Oxford Uni and Leeds uni, Falmouth was different; being close to the coast with fresh air, it felt that I had a lot more opportunities to work with. Falmouth has a very close knit creative community which gave you the comfort of easily collaborating across the board with other degrees. However you find your path you have to experience and experiment in other subject matters to know where your best line of fit is. Falmouth Uni always so supportive and enthusiastic of what you did and where you wanted to go. - Nina Brooke

I studied at Falmouth from 1961 - 1964. It was a four year course, after a year many students left and went to other colleges where they could take the new DipAD but, along with two other students, I stayed on for two years to do NDD (Painting Special.) It was a very wise choice, we had terrific tutors there at that time, Robert Organ, Francis Hewlett, Lionel Miskin, Ray Exworth to name a few.The principal Michael Finn was wise enough to employ practicing artists and some of them had studios in the school.
It was a very important, formative period of my life. - Robert Jones
