<p>Of course, there may be inner anguishes, but still there’s an abandon, a thirst – before it inevitably leaves, usually gradually, sometimes suddenly. Many &amp; Beautiful Things is as much about those points when things change, as it is about a mindset that it won’t. And perhaps a nostalgia for more innocent times.</p> <p><strong>Missed the opening? Don't worry, the exhibition will be open to the public until 31 August 2019.</strong></p> <p>This mixed media exhibition includes large scale print, photography, audio-visual and installation pieces. From Cornwall-based artist Naomi Frears' new work confessing the incidents and thoughts that mortified her with shame and embarrassment as a teenager, but as time passes, have faded to mild amusement, to Beth Emily Richards turning her attention to an icon of hyper-masculinity, Arnold Schwarzenegger, through the art of printing wallpaper with tanning oil using the screenprinting facilities available at the college.</p> <p>Many &amp; Beautiful Things features artists Naomi Frears, Binelde Hyrcan, Melanie Manchot, Santiago Mostyn, and Beth Emily Richards. A version of this exhibition was first presented at Newlyn Art Gallery &amp; The Exchange, autumn 2018, curated by Blair Todd.</p> <p><strong>What:</strong> Many &amp; Beautiful Things - exhibition</p> <p><strong>When:</strong> Friday 5 July - Saturday 31 August 2019 (Monday-Friday 9am-5pm, Saturday 10am-1pm, closed Sunday), free and open to all</p> <p><strong>Where:</strong> The Gallery at Plymouth College of Art, PL4 8AT</p>
