John Armstrong: Dream and Reality


Although John Armstrong ARA (1893 – 1973) studied briefly at St John’s Wood School of Art he was essentially self-taught. His one-man exhibition in 1928 established him in avant-garde circles, including that of Unit One with Ben Nicholson, Paul Nash and others.

He later became deeply involved in theatre and film, designing sets for the Royal Ballet and costumes for ten of Alexander Korda’s epic films.

His diverse work shows the influence of Surrealism, but he was never a Surrealist; instead he forged a very personal style that attacked conventional ideas and beliefs with ironic wit and personal symbolism.

The exhibition is supported by a display of work from Armstong’s contemporaries including Roland Penrose, Tristram Hillier and Marion Elizabeth Adnams.

Organised in association with Penlee House Gallery & Museum, Penzance

Why Look at Animals?

This exhibition looks at our relationship with animals. John Berger argued in his 1977 essay Why Look At Animals?, that humanity has lost its contact with nature since moving into town and cities. We now tend to think of animals only as Zoo creatures, pets or food source.

Artists from the early Victorian period to the present day have been aware of this change in perception and this exhibition presents a wide range of responses.
