Of course, there may be inner anguishes, but still there’s an abandon, a thirst – before it inevitably leaves, usually gradually, sometimes suddenly. Many & 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.

Missed the opening? Don't worry, the exhibition will be open to the public until 31 August 2019.

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.

Many & 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 & The Exchange, autumn 2018, curated by Blair Todd.
