CIRCLE is a Fine Art Gallery located in North Cornwall.

The gallery represents a diverse group of artists living in the UK and Europe who have a strong personal style. We are committed to showing contemporary art, which above all is visually acute, thoughtful and beautiful.

Lucy Thorman runs the gallery with a professional but relaxed vibe, in keeping with west coast gallery convention.

The gallery is a cool and minimal space which is continually evolving, showing emerging and well known artists, alternating group and solo exhibitions, focusing on fresh and innovative art.

Bob Aldous 'Black Wave II' Watercolour, ink, graphite and acrylic on silk 100 x 150 cms


Spring to Sea ~ Paintings by Bob Aldous and poetry by Myra Schneider

13 APR – 14 MAY 2019 | Floor 2

Painting and poetry make good bedfellows. Here we see the poet Myra Schneider respond to the paintings of artist Bob Aldous. Collaborations between poets and painters are not new. In fact there is a fashionable movement of responding to painting through poetry.  The late art writer John Berger, in his seminal book ‘Ways of Seeing’ reminded us that images come first, then words- ‘but when a poet creates a poem in response to a work of art then the words become another way of seeing’ .
