Journeys through the real and the imagination…
22nd March – 22nd May 2019
COLOURSCAPES. The Spring exhibition at The Heseltine Gallery, Truro, showcases the glorious colour of one of Cornwall’s leading painters, Ashley Hanson. His sensuous, enigmatic, canvases, painterly responses to place and the novel, blur the borders between fact and fiction, abstraction and figuration. A selection of paintings from his Cornish, ‘City of Glass’ and ’20 Books=20 Paintings’ series, will hang alongside works from many of the artists who inspired him – Peter Lanyon, Patrick Heron, Terry Frost – from the Truro School Collection.
A former architecture student who switched to Fine Art after being enraptured by a Peter Lanyon exhibition in 1978, Ashley Hanson is a prizewinning artist with an extensive national exhibition record including the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, National Open Art, and The Discerning Eye. Recent exhibitions include Wells Art Contemporary and ‘Discovery: Contemporary Art Perspectives from England’ in New York.
Private View Friday 22nd March 5pm – 8pm
Thank you so much for your hospitality in providing such excellent facilities for the AOTOS Access Day. We were very happy with the arrangements. The caretakers and catering staff were so approachable and willing to help.
Cornwall Chamber of Commerce was delighted with the venue of the SBA Sport’s Centre for its Business Fair 2018 and received really positive feedback from attendees. Truro School’s team were very efficient and the space was transformed into a professional business fair.
