25 Nov A Busy Start for the Ankemmyn Collective
Art lovers were given a taste of this summer’s Lorient Interceltic Festival back home in Cornwall throughout November.
Me and the other three original artists who were chosen to display our work at the arts and music festival in Brittany this year have joined forces with three other talented creatives to launch the multimedia Ankemmyn Collective.
As well as myself, the others include James Eddy, Leo Sharp, Zenna Tagney, Vivienne Gillard, John Eddy, and Kirsty Smith. The works include photography, paintings, and sculpture, so it’s quite an exciting collective of talented artists who work with a wide variety of materials and media. Although Vivienne, John and Kirsty didn’t display work at the Lorient Festival, they were massively involved in the organization and installation.
The newly launched Ankemmyn Collective had its premiere at the Fish Factory in Falmouth, with more than 130 people attending the opening night on 30th October and the exhibition running until 13th November.
The successful exhibition was then followed with a special event at County Hall in Truro on November 24th, where we were thanked for our work and contribution to the Lorient Festival by Cornwall County Council.
For those that missed the Fish Factory Ankemmyn Collective event, the exhibition is once again being displayed at Lys Kernow, County Hall, until January 20th 2016.
