Artists Afloat Exhibition – Tuke and Hemy at Sea
25 March - 17 June 2017
Falmouth Art Gallery, 10am-5pm, Free entry
Set sail into the Carrick Roads aboard the magnificent marine paintings of Henry Scott Tuke and Charles Napier Hemy.
Both of these Falmouth-based Royal Academicians painted many of their artworks out at sea, aboard their own floating studios. Using research from Tuke’s diaries and Hemy’s articles and sketchbooks the exhibition will showcase works painted by Tuke, on the Julie of Nantes, and by Hemy, whilst afloat in the Vandermeer, on the waters surrounding Falmouth.
The exhibition also includes a stunning selection of the finest watercolour’s Tuke and Hemy painted aboard their floating studios.
