Streetdraw24: The Exhibition

This free exhibition contains the work of more than 100 adults and children who took to the streets of Falmouth during the town’s 6th  StreetDraw24 – an everyone-is-welcome community drawing event held here each year.

It features observational drawings, digital drawings, collage, and paintings created over a 24-hour period during the last weekend of September 2023, and reminds us that while we are all surrounded by the same things, places, people we all see them in different ways.

StreetDraw24 has become a Falmouth institution, each year attracting an eclectic mix of well-known artists and creative practitioners, enthusiastic amateurs and hobbyists, students and teachers and lecturers, as well as children and first-time drawers. The StreetDraw24 exhibition, packed full of different perspectives on this wonderful town, is a love letter to Falmouth and a celebration of all things Falmouthy!

All images are all for sale, at the same affordable prices, alongside StreetDraw24 2024 calendars displaying work from previous events in Cornwall. 50% of funds go to St Petrocs for their work with people facing homelessness here in Cornwall and 50% help StreetDraw24 run more creative projects and events.
