Summer Exhibition 2023

A celebration of the artistic talent from our community, The Poly Members’ Summer Exhibition is a long-running, annual art show that showcases 2D and 3D works in all media and artistic disciplines. Showcasing the best works from both established and new artists,  this much anticipated exhibition takes place in our beautiful Main Gallery upstairs at The Poly.

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.
