A NEW VISUAL ARTS FESTIVAL IN FALMOUTH
A little something I have been working on behind the scenes, Form Art Festival Friday 30 Sept to Sunday 2 Oct 2022.
FRIENDS BORN OUT OF ADVERSITY
Ann Morgan of Morgans gallery and I first met in 2020 and bonded over both coincidentally trying to refurbish Grade II listed buildings and open our new businesses during the Covid pandemic. It was great to have someone who understood the trials and tribulations. Now we are working together on launching a visual arts festival for Falmouth this year – Form.
CELEBRATING THE VISUAL ARTS IN CORNWALL
This county of Cornwall has long been a source of inspiration, refuge, and community. Both shaped by and simultaneously shaping the creatives who call it home. Artists and makers here are influenced by the rhythms of the landscape that surrounds us, inspired by both the raw dynamism and the gentle ebb and flow. We believe the art created in Cornwall is unparalleled and deserves to be celebrated by both familiar and new faces.
Already championing both established and emerging Cornish talent through our independent galleries in Falmouth, we are also keen to provide a platform for people at all stages in their creative journey. This festival will introduce artists and makers to new audiences, support the growth of Falmouth’s dynamic artistic community, and offer opportunities to learn more about the visual arts.
Form will offer a series of events such as talks, workshops and exhibitions in venues across the town, including in a 3-day art fair at Princess Pavilion. Here you’ll be able to immerse yourself in the work of hugely talented Cornish artists and craftspeople and purchase directly from these small creative enterprises.
Form is supported by Falmouth BID and is part of an exciting new group of creative and cultural festivals working together as “Falmouth Creates”.
Please come and take a look if you are Falmouth – visit our website for further information on the event programme.
