What’s On 2018

Golowan Festival 15 – 24 June 2018

Official Website 

Golowan Goes Wild About All Creatures Great and Small

Friday 15 June

10 am – 5 pm – Newlyn Art Gallery & The Exchange (Both venues) – Rosalie Wylie – History Painting – Free Admission 

Rose Wylie is best known for creating colourful, large-scale, figurative paintings that are smart, funny, and quietly political. These are usually made from memory and draw on a wide range of cultural references from history, fashion and cinema, to mythology, sport and literature. The thread linking these fields is her interest in how images evolve and accumulate meaning – becoming familiar, iconic and part of the narrative of popular culture and wider history.  Continues  until 15 September.

10 am – 5 pm – Offsite, Richmond Chapel, Tolver Place, Penzance TR18 2AB – Janet Cardiff – Forty  Part Motet – Free Admission

Janet Cardiff’s internationally acclaimed sound installation Forty Part Motet(2001) is at Richmond Chapel in Penzance, a former Wesleyan Chapel and Grade II listed building.  Cardiff has reworked 16th-century composer Thomas Tallis’s choral piece Spem in alium nunquam habui by recording 40 individual male voices (bass, baritone, alto, tenor and child soprano) and playing each individual voice through its own speaker, so that the visitor can move amongst the 40 speakers to listen to single voices, or be immersed in the overall complexity of the choral ensemble. Presented by Newlyn Art Gallery & The Exchange as part of the Groundwork programme.   Continues until 28 August.

10 am – 5 pm – The Exchange Gallery, Penzance – Exhibition, Home of Springs, Trengwainton – Free Admission 

Home of Springs, Trengwainton – discover and explore the stories of Madron’s unique garden and delve deep into the history of the people, plants and place. Exhibition, Talk and Special Film Screening to celebrate this 3-year collaborative project.  Runs until 28 July.

The  Paddling Jackdaw Photo Competition – Find the Spot, Take a Shot – Throughout the festival period with a Walking Workshop from Humphry Davy Statue – 2 pm –  Wednesday 20th June

Look out for a series of pictures taken at various locations around Penzance. They will be published together with full details on how to enter on paddlingjackdaw.com, the Golowan website and on the Paddling Jackdaw Facebook page. Once you’ve worked out where the pictures were taken, go there, take a shot of your own and share it. There will be prizes!
