Goodbye Kurt

Just a reminder the last day of the Kurt Jackson exhibition will be Sunday 15th March.  Must not be missed! It has been a fantastic exhibition and our first to be held in the brand new Hard Rock Gallery.  I do recommend it, the paintings are very striking.

“These are far more than pretty or dramatic pictures: they get beneath the skin of the surroundings and explore, often with great passion, the contexts within which the scenes exists”

Bill Lakin, Chair, Pendeen Community Heritage.

Last Chance to see!
