For the first time ever, Fowey will be hosting it’s own Arts Trail, taking you through the town and beyond, with a varied and eclectic display from some of Fowey’s finest artists.
Nestled right in the town are the art galleries – amongst them Toe in the Water with Max Harrower’s digital canvas works and Art for Serious People – Fowey’s very own Venetian gondolier Dino De Zorzi’s unique paintings and sculptures.
Shops are also taking part in the Arts Trail, and the Webb St Company will be displaying work by Julian and Nathan Davies – two generations of artists showing together for the first time.
Take a trip through the town and just opposite the lifeboat station you’ll find multi award winning wildlife photographer Ian McCarthy, who will be showing some of his unique panoramic shots from around the world.
This is also chance to see artists at work in their own space, and to explore Fowey the same time.
Follow the Arts Trail and you’ll be visiting Julia Cooper who specialises in abstract and figurative work in oils and mixed media and can be found in St Fimbarrus Road, a short walk from town. Up in Tavern Barn near the hospital, see Gordon Hunt’s stunning works in acrylic and oil, while ceramicist Heather Hunt will be creating stoneware bowls and sculptures.
Further afield, don’t miss out on Sian Hill and Ways with Willow at the Russell Inn in Polruan, a short ferry ride across the harbour. The Gribben Gallery is set in a stunning location right on the beach at Polkerris, a 5 minute drive away.
