Falmouth Alumni: 1950-1970 Falmouth Art Gallery

Falmouth boasts one of the most exciting, diverse, energetic and creative art scenes in Cornwall. Falmouth is a centre of academic and artistic excellence, as a result, there are a number of superb small galleries located throughout the town centre featuring the work of talented local artists. In addition to these smaller galleries, we also have the main Falmouth Art Gallery, which has vibrant exhibitions, year-round event programme and workshops for all ages. Exhibitions change regularly, alongside the permanent collections and major museum loans, work from local artists, community groups, school children and students. There will be something for everyone.

In the post-war years, Falmouth School of Art's excellent reputation was cemented. The Falmouth Alumni: 1950-1970 exhibition explores the work of students of this period, who under the Principals Jack Chalker and Michael Finn went on to have successful and diverse careers.
