Plymouth College of Art: New Curators

Plymouth College of Art: New Curators
16 – 24 June, St Endellion Hall

(Open at weekends only, from 11.30am to 4.30pm)
Endelienta has invited students from the Painting, Drawing and Printmaking Programme at Plymouth College of Art to put together this exhibition giving a flavour of the themes, techniques and questions they explore in today’s world.

Drawing – Experimentation & Expression

Drawing – Experimentation & Expression
5 – 20 May, St Endellion Hall

(Open at weekends only, from 11.30am to 4.30pm)
Drawing has always taken a central place in the work of visual artists. Whether on large sheets of paper pinned to the wall or in the intimacy of a pocket-sized sketchbook, drawing is what painters, printmakers, potters and sculptors use to record observations, explore compositions, investigate themes and try out approaches. It is intriguing to follow the artist’s discoveries and experiments, but drawings are also an expression in their own right. In recent years there is renewed recognition of the impact of drawing and growing interest from collectors for tonal works.

This new exhibition shows a variety of approaches to drawing from artists including Jackie Henderson, Max William Burrows, Paul Jackson and Peter Ursem.

Reflective Days

The Theology of Container Ships

Saturday 26 May, 10am-3pm

led by Peter Bonsey

Peter presents the container ship as an icon of our prevailing neo-liberal globalised economic system which is damaging to human beings and to creation. St. Francis lived and showed a Gospel understanding of our world. Whether St. Francis or the container ship becomes the prevailing icon will depend on the actions taken by millions of perfectly ordinary people of faith.

Peter Bonsey is a member of the Third Order of the Society of St. Francis. He is also a retired teacher, lawyer and boatbuilder. His interest in container ships arose from a chance meeting with one in mid Atlantic and a radio conversation with the officer of the watch on board it.

Tickets £10. Bring a picnic lunch.

 

Rain falling by the River, A day with Christopher Southgate

Saturday 23 June, 10am-3pm

Poetry can open up spaces of reflection, imagination and prayer that are not reached in any other way. Christopher Southgate is Associate Professor in Interdisciplinary Theology at Exeter University and the author of eight collections of poetry. He will take us on a journey through poems of place, from Patmos to Lindisfarne, poems that strike new sparks from the Scriptures, poems of suffering and grief, poems of the spiritual life, honestly faced. The emphasis will be on encouraging our own explorations, offering us new angles on the imaginative life.

Tickets £10. Bring a picnic lunch.

St Minver Church Fete

St Minver Church Fete will be held on Wednesday 15th August.

This year it is a week earlier than usual so that it doesn’t clash with ‘Camel week’. We rely on lots of people who would also be involved in that special sailing event and so have found it necessary to make this decision. Please note it in your diaries and come along to make it as much fun as it always is.
