This exhibition foregrounds a major St Ives artist – Terry Frost – in the context of a group of younger artists; Jim Lambie, Victoria Morton, Julie Roberts and Richard Slee, who are unknown in St Ives.

Works by Terry Frost from the 1950s and 1960s and new work are on show.

Jim Lambie makes intriguing objects and installations which draw on the process of painting for their construction. Victoria Morton’s paintings hover between figuration and abstraction and are rich in surface texture and colour. Julie Roberts has created a wall work for the gallery, and Richard Slee is showing recent and new ceramics.
