Exhibitions // Coming up // Sophie Penstone and Alice Hole
20 November

Sophie Penstone and Alice Hole

 Two local artists, Sophie Penstone and Alice Hole, are coming together for their first joint exhibition to celebrate their love of the Cornish landscape and exhibit new work that is inspired by their local surroundings that plays a fundamental part in their paintings.

Alice is a fine artist who moved to Cornwall in 2012 and uses the beautiful landscape as her main source of inspiration.  She is a member of The National Acrylic Painters’ Association and has won awards with her work.

Sophie has been painting in watercolour since her move to Cornwall 16 years ago and enjoys pushing it as a medium exploring different subject matter, be it flora in the hedgerow, a pocket of woodland, the power of the sea or local harbours. Her work has been exhibited in Europe and she has collectors from all corners of the world.

In their individual but complimentary styles, this exhibition follows both Alice and Sophie on their journey through West Cornwall from beach to countryside to town. Through their paintings and drawings they aim to take us with them, pausing to show this stunning area from their unique viewpoint; a wave breaking on a beach, a rural path in autumnal hues, a boat moored in a harbour bathed in light and the stunning creeks and coves along the Helford River.
