Sunday 17 September 2017
7pm
Opening Hours: 6 - 10pm

In recognition of Newlyn’s history of ‘plein air’ painting, artists will once again be invited to leave their studios, equipped with materials and a packed lunch, and spend a day working outdoors in Newlyn, Penzance and further afield in Penwith. At the end of the day at Newlyn Art Gallery, buyers will have the opportunity to bid on the works created that very day, which may, in some cases, still be wet.

You can follow their movements throughout the day via social media using #wetnewlyn.

The gallery will be open from 18.00 so that you can preview the works. There will be food from Little Wonder cafe and a pay bar. By 19.00, the works will be hung in the upper gallery ready to be auctioned by David Lay of David Lay Auctions. The money raised is eligible to be matched, and therefore doubled, by Catalyst: Evolve in our 10th Anniversary Year so that we can continue to support art and artists in West Cornwall.
