Kettle's Yard is presenting strongly contrasting exhibitions during the summer, including a double birthday celebration.

The Pier Arts Centre Collection
10 July - 12 September 2004

While the Pier Arts Centre in Stromness in the Orkneys develops its galleries and premises, this exhibition allows a rare, southerly glimpse of a selection from one of the truly remarkable collections of St Ives art. It is also presented to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Centre, founded in 1979, and the100th birthday of the creator of the collection, Margaret Gardiner.

Like Jim Ede, nine years her elder, Margaret Gardiner was part of Hampstead in the '30s and became a close friend and supporter of Barbara Hepworth, Ben Nicholson and Naum Gabo. Apart from a cottage in the Orkneys, Hampstead has remained her home to this day but, with the move of the Hepworth-Nicholson family to Cornwall, her artistic circle and collecting widened. The exhibition features an outstanding group of sculptures by Barbara Hepworth as well as paintings by Ben Nicholson, Alfred Wallis, Peter Lanyon, William Scott, Patrick Heron, Terry Frost, Roger Hilton, John Wells and Margaret Mellis.

Douglas Allsop
10 July - 12 September 2004

Douglas Allsop does not create images but his works do. Using reflective materials they mirror the rooms they are in, the views through windows, and the people looking at them. The images are elusive, ghostly, caught on a screen of video-tape spanning the room, or registering on a perforated surface so that the 'frame' becomes a constantly changing picture. Allsop explores our processes of perception and plays with our quest for stability and meaning.

The exhibition extends from the gallery into Kettle's Yard house, complementing its inherent qualities of light and reflection. It is accompanied by a catalogue with an essay by Alison Green.

Douglas Allsop was born in 1943 in London, where he continues to live and work. Since 1995, he has been Director of Studies at the Byam Shaw School of Art, London, and Tutor in Painting at the Royal College of Art.
