  • Description
  • Related

Since the foundation of the Portscatho Society of Artists in 1984, followed by the opening of the gallery and studio associated with their work, the number and variety of artists frequenting this small Cornish fishing village can quite properly be described as an art colony. Some have been involved from the very beginning while others have joined along the way – each quite different in style but always enjoying the company of their fellow artists and drawing upon the fellowship of others in the creation of their individual work.

While some have stayed, others have touched the community only briefly, using the colony at Portscatho as a stepping stone to future artistic careers. All have contributed to the diversity of the art to be found at Portscatho today, and this book celebrates over twenty years of artistic endeavour and companionship.

Featuring over 150 paintings and photographs and including the work of Lynn Golden, Chris Insoll, Trevor Felcey, Grace Gardner, Michael Stone, Eric Ward and many other artists. With a Foreword by Brian Stewart, Curator of Falmouth Art Gallery. Chris Insoll, the Author, trained as an artist at Falmouth Art School in the 1980s and has combined a career in painting with life as a gallery owner, writer and art dealer. Owner of the New Gallery in Portscatho, this remains at the hub of the colony which he helped found, and which he writes about with love and great affection in this book.

ISBN 9781841145426, hardback, 258x238mm, 144 pages. Published September 2006.
