Nanstallon Cornish Artists at the Shire Hall Gallery
We are an informal group of about a dozen who meet on a Tuesday afternoon in
Nanstallon Chapel. We’re tutored by local professional artist, jam and pickle maker,
Wendy Parkyn, who has a studio / gallery between Wadebridge and Rock.
Wendy encourages us to try a wide range of media and styles, giving regular
demonstrations and individual encouragement and feedback. There are no
sanctions if we choose not to follow whatever medium or style is current, but it’s
probably of benefit to our artistic development if we do.
There is universal agreement that tea and cake helps our creative faculty. Some of
us are members of Camel Art whilst others have found individual outlets for their
work. However there’s no expectation that either exhibiting or sales are the
benchmark for what we do. Rather that we simply enjoy and explore our creative
instincts in a supportive and friendly environment.
