Sarah Bryant, Paintings

1 to 8 April. For opening times please go to the Endelienta website www.endelienta.org.uk

For Sarah Bryant painting is a way to express her enjoyment in what she sees and experiences. This can happen in very diverse places and circumstances, including last year’s Easter Music Festival at St Endellion.

When Sarah was invited to be the festival’s first ‘residence painter’, she seized the opportunity to draw members of the orchestra in rehearsal. “I love to watch a player’s stance, the position of the hands and the interplay between hands and instrument. My attention has spread to the choir, audience, and even an exhausted chef, worn out by producing a picnic for the entire company!”

This exhibition shows the striking and colourful results of Sarah’s festival observations, alongside some of her other works.

Also open during concert intervals. Please note that access to the exhibition may be restricted due to music rehearsals in the hall.

Cheryll Kinsley Potter, New Icons

Weekends 10 to 25 March, 11.30am-4.30pm

Dating back to the Byzantine Empire around 200 AD, Iconography (image writing) was said to be the depiction of saints and the holy family as real representations, handed down through the centuries. The Icon was a vehicle for prayer and was usually kept in a cupboard or niche until required. It was also made as a triptych (3 panel) or diptych (2 panel) which folded shut when not in use and could be transported as a travelling altarpiece.

Artist Cheryll Kinsley Potter came to Iconography after visiting the Monasteries of Meteora in Central Greece. Cheryll finds a powerful presence in the icons, a silence, a peace and a fierce beauty which she strives to recreate in all her work. In this exhibition she shows her latest icons, alongside some of her richly coloured landscape paintings.

Preview: Friday 9 March, 6-8pm
