Private View The Arborealists and St Ives Society of Artists

Opening Night held at The Mariner's Gallery St Ives

Ten Arborealists attended the private view held at the glorious location of The Mariner's Gallery, home of The St. Ives Society of Artists. The society exhibited alongside Arborealists with their responses to the theme of the tree.

A good time was had by all in this iconic town in Cornwall and the exhibition was favourably reviewed in the St Ives Times & Echo by art critic Peter Davies.

Private View at Black Swan Arts, Frome

Private View for the Arborealists at Black Swan Arts

The opening night at Black Swan Arts was a great success with very many visitors and Arborealists attending. 

The exhibition looked wonderful, very many thanks to Paul Newman and his team, Philippa Beale and Tim Craven for all their hard work on creating such a fluent show,  the wide range and diversity of Arborealists' talent and interpretation was celebrated.

The show filled the entire venue which consists of a grand rectangular room in the main body of the building and also the spectacular round tower.

Included in the show was a painting by Paul Nash, Pond In The Fields 1927, loaned to the Arborealists for the duration of the show from a private collection and one that hadn't been seen in public for several years.

We were also treated to a beautiful song called If Trees Could Talk, What Would They Say? by the wonderful singer Vaishnavi Brassey after the opening speeches by Tim Craven and Paul Newman who introduced the exhibition.

John Davies Gallery Opening Weekend

Private View Weekend Arborealists and Guests at John Davies Gallery

The private view for Arborealists & Guests at John Davies Gallery was held over the course of a weekend which was very successful and allowed John to invite guests who attended at their leisure over two days.

Twelve of the Arborealists exhibiting attended on Saturday 7th July which was a very hot summer's day, alongside guest artist Miriam Escofet winner of the BP Portrait Prize 2018, who had two beautiful paintings of olive trees included in the show.

John Davies also exhibited paintings of his own as he also loves to paint the tree!
