This December, we present Precious Metals, a dazzling exhibition of handcrafted jewellery, sculpture, silverwork, painting and photography for the Christmas gift season. Marsha Drew’s elegant jewellery is inspired by the beauty of Cornwall’s wild coast and crafted from fine and sterling silver with 24 and 18 carat gold, and precious and semi-precious stones; metal sculptor Kerry Whittle’s contemporary bronze and steel works define him as one of Cornwall’s leading master craftsman; North Cornwall landscape photographer Nick Reader uses silver to create images of unique quality and beauty; award winning silversmith Rachael Osborne creates truly unique bowls from molten metals at her North Cornwall studio, and Suki Wapshott’s landscapes, seascapes and abstract works are enhanced with the metallic warmth of gold and silver leaf.

Our friends at Waterfront Rooftop Restaurant, Polzeath, will be partnering us in this opening night event, offering a special, post preview, seasonally inspired set menu from 8pm. Enjoy a complementary gin and tonic at the Gallery followed by a complementary ‘Precious Metals’ Cocktail on arrival at the Rooftop Bar, before sitting down to a spectacular three course meal created from the finest local produce.
