Kober – Heseltine Gallery

Kober, Copper ‘Koh-bur’

The fascinating Kober exhibition launched at the Heseltine Gallery last week and runs until 8 December (open Saturday 10:00 – 15:00 and Wednesday 17:00 – 20:00).

Artists were invited to respond to the theme of Kober, Copper ‘Koh-bur’, interpreting the theme in terms of copper’s properties, manufacture, history or simply offer an innovative printmaking response that focuses and compliments the artists’ practice. Submissions were selected by professional printmaker John Howard and members of the Heseltine Guild.

Pieces selected for this show include sensational works by Andrew Swan, Angela Annesley, Barry Amey, Bella Bee, Chloe Laurence, Colin Mier, Jevon Holman, Megan Fatharly, Michael Donnelly, Nicky Harwood, Paula Bolton, Pip Bryson, Robin Dowell, Sarah Seddon, Tom Robinson and Trudy Montgomery with additional pieces on show by Bernard Irwin and Jesse Leroy-Smith, Lindsey Morgan-Lundie, Jane Ashdown and Cadi Froehlich.

These pieces are hung alongside some of the prints from the Truro School Art Collection; a prestigious selection of drawings, paintings, prints and photographs created by Cornish Artists assembled over 40 years, including works by Sir Terry Frost, Bernard Leach, Tom Cross, Robert Jones, Louise McClary and Wilhelmina Barns-Graham.
