Alexandra and her partner Paul both worked voluntarily within Shallal approximately 10 years ago before going off to international travels. While they were with us they helped Terri edit a beautiful 4 min doc about the main company. We are so pleased and excited to have her " on board".

“Their creation of an emotionally intense, site-specific ambush, that ebbed, flowed and ricocheted throughout the museum for the better part of three hours, renewed my faith in the ability of people to sincerely and honestly affect how others view the world and operate within it. They performed with a profound endurance, intelligence, and grace that felt motivated by an inherent generosity in their approach to human interaction. I believe everyone there felt connected; we were breathing in the scenarios they devised, watching, as if experiencing the world, together, for the first time”, Warren Fry, audience member
While chatting with her i was so pleased to share the news of our Porthmeor Studios Residency - many thanks to our other new trustee Henrietta Boex for enabling this. Henrietta is Director of Falmouth Art Gallery. It will be July, August and September! - we are all indulging our best beach fantasies, the turquoise sea in front, the Tate nearby and the island to the right and town behind you!
The steering group meet on the 9th and we will start to plan and timetable - anyone interested in being involved please contact me via email@example.com
We have 2 new artists Eden and Michel who live in St Ives. One of our first conversations was they might get a studio but didn't want to be more socially isolated.....
More of this as it develops, we face 4 months of wonderful residencies, Porthmeor Studio July - September and Back Lane West in October and Shallal Dance Theatre have 5 days at The Performance Centre with an AMATA residency 20 - 24 July and wish to invite in artists to draw and photograph the dancers and musicians at work on the 20th and 21st July.
Anna and Annis are about to start working with Falmouth Art Gallery towards Silver Arts Awards, this will help them both develop their arts experience and portfolios, as they are aiming to attend Truro College Arts and Design Diploma - both have brothers on this course at present! it is a fantastic course.
And lastly with the call out from Heart and Sold i was again thinking of artist Sally Walters her colourful and joyful works deserves to be more widely seen.
I took some snaps of her work on the walls of St Peter's Hall, part of the joy of working there is the art work from the Monday art group is hung on the walls every week.
