The Art School: Fourteen Falmouth Artists from Six Decades

Celebrating our artists' connection to the acclaimed Falmouth University with our biggest exhibition at Beside The Wave London yet.

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.

The exhibitionl features fourteen painters 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 Miles Heseltine who studied there for his Foundation Diploma in 1985 - 86; 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 two new artists to the gallery, recent graduates Nina Brooke and Hector Trend.
