The importance of the local arts has now been recognised in Camborne. Dylan’s Gallery, the brainchild of Colin and Debbie Smith who own Dylan’s Bear Necessities, had its official opening on Friday 23rd March.
Colin said “The aim of the gallery is to provide affordable original works ranging from £5 to £99.99, while paying the artists a premium commission. The exhibition houses a collection of woodwork, pottery, sea glass art, paintings, mosaics and photography which bring together the very best of local artists and crafters.
With new and specially prepared works from local artists including Patricia Todd, Mairi Williamson, Pauline Odgers, Janine Hollins, Diane Wilkes, Anne Kinge, and Iv Cornish. Guest Artist work will also appear from time to time.
Wood worker Stuart Makin is displaying his exquisite clocks and plaques and his wife Sara has made some specially gorgeous and unique felt bears for the gallery. Dylan’s Gallery resident artist and photographer Colin W Smith (me) is showing his 1st series of Trawler Trolls and a selection of his black & white work with a Cornish theme.”
Mel Martin, BID Camborne Manager said ‘Camborne is delighted to welcome this new business which is truly supporting our local creative enterprises and offering unique product, rather than mass market.”
Dylan’s Gallery, located at 56 Trelowarren Street at Dylan’s Bear Necessities is open Tuesday-Saturday from 10am.
