The Poly Members’ Summer Exhibition
The annual Members' Summer Exhibition exists to showcase the work of Poly members. In The Poly archive there are records of the Members' Exhibition running nearly every year from 1960 onwards, and even some mentions of exhibitions taking place pre-war. And of course, the work of the-then Royal Cornwall Society in the 19th century in bringing art classes to the town was a precursor to the eventual establishment of the highly respected Falmouth School of Art, now Falmouth University.
After two exhibition cancellations last year, we're delighted to have 60 artists taking part in this year's show - an increase of a third on 2019. As ever we have a huge range of work - over 180 pieces! - showcasing sculpture, jewellery, ceramics, photography, textiles, printmaking, drawing and many wonderful painting techniques. Much of the work is for sale. We're very excited to open it to members, locals and visitors, upstairs in our beautiful Main Gallery, over three weeks.
