National Maritime Museum Cornwall has teamed up with the Beside the Wave Gallery and The John Dyer Gallery to create an exciting new game for visitors to the Museum over the summer.  The Giant Puzzle Cube challenges visitors to piece together the work of local artists in the quickest time possible.
 
This unique collaboration has seen a number of local artists contribute work for the puzzle cube, including Tracy Rees, Emma Dunbar, Amanda Hoskin, Helen Beard, John Raynes and Miles Heseltine from the Beside the Wave Gallery and John Dyer from the John Dyer Gallery.
 
Beside The Wave is an art gallery and publishing company located in the main street of Falmouth.  Established in 1989, the gallery provides a venue to show the work of leading contemporary artists and potters and offers a lively and constantly changing display with up to ten exhibitions a year, featuring the work of individual artists.
 
Established in 2005 the John Dyer Gallery exhibits the work of John Dyer and Joanne Short, both well known Cornish and British painters.
 
Milly Newman, Exhibitions Development Manager says: “The Giant Puzzle Cube is already proving to be a hit with families in the Museum.  It’s great to see children of all ages engaging with the work of local artists, and hopefully inspiring them to create art of their own.”
 
The Giant Puzzle Cube is just one of the exciting hands on summer activities at the National Maritime Museum Cornwall from the 25 July to 1 September.
