Species features artwork depicting a range of creatures from the small and scaly to the large and hairy!

All creatures great and small can be seen in the Species exhibition at Falmouth Art Gallery. Species features artwork depicting a range of creatures from the small and scaly to the large and hairy! This quirky exhibition is the second in a series of four Darwin 200 celebratory exhibitions funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Darwin was the man who had the bassoon played to earthworms and the harmonica to orang-utans to observe their reactions. His intriguing research methods set the tone for this exciting exhibition that includes works by local artists such as Susan Boafo, Paul Chaney, John Dyer, Tony Foster, Professor Alan Male and Patrick Woodroffe to name a few.

Other highlights are a ‘Spitting Image' puppet of Press pig by Peter Fluck and Roger Law, Suzanne Crook's decorated horse sculptures, a specially commissioned illustration by John Harrold (illustrator for Rupert Bear), as well as sea horses, pelicans, iguanas, moths, sea gulls and blue footed boobies!

Funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and University College Falmouth incorporating Dartington College of Arts.
Part of New Expressions funded by MLA South West, supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
