Porthmeor Studios Renovation project January 2012
Sights and sounds from the many rooms that make up the studios. The Borlase Smart John Wells Trust Limited owns and manages unique and historic artists studios in St Ives and Newlyn, Cornwall, including possibly the two oldest surviving studios in the country. We will continue to develop this website over the next few months to include full details of the Trust’s activities, the rich heritage of its studios and its renovation projects. Porthmeor Studios in St Ives provides workspace for fishermen, artists and the St Ives School of Painting, but is perhaps best known for the internationally significant artists who have worked here, including Ben Nicholson, Patrick Heron, Francis Bacon and Wilhelmina Barns Graham. © Graham Gaunt sound & Image 2011 Made in Penwith, Cornwall.
