The Redwing Gallery in Penzance is a side-street treasure. Here's a brief snapshot in words - with a couple of images:

REDWING is a unique volunteer-led not-for-profit art gallery and community hub with outsider art, vegan coffee shop, affordable artists' studios, exhibition, meeting and event space.
Redwing was founded by two Cornish artists: Peter Fox and Roselyne Williams in 2011.
The Redwing building houses two floors of exhibition, performance and rehearsal space, open access non-toxic printmaking and book arts facilities, affordable artist's studios, reference books and Cafe de Cuba vegan speciality coffee shop.                      
In addition to regular changing exhibitions, visitors can see work by artists Paul Broad, Lucy Brown, Marc Craig, Peter Fox, Rebecca Jazwinder-Leest,  John Sheehy, Alan Streets and more.

Please have a look at our calendar page to see upcoming events at Redwing.

I accepted Peter and Roselyne's invitation to take up a Residency in June and have had fun in

devising this timetable for the month: 

Each 2-hour session will run from 10.30 to 12.30 and I will come with a 45-minute core talk to run from 11.00 to 11.45. That should provide some structure - but I am only too happy to respond to questions, provide readings from the books and articles - and generally move with the flow as the audience shapes the session.

Saturday 2 June - 'Jago' the biography - How it took off ...

Tuesday 5 June - Biography from an online detective agency

Many thanks to Michael Mort for this image of Jago at work in the village of Swalcliffe in 1977

And so I sign off, one week to the day before the Residency begins:
