COLONISING CORNWALL: Bushey Artists in the West Country

Anne Blessley Gallery

22 October 2022 until April 2023

Once Bushey artists had completed their studies, a number of them progressed to the art colonies that had developed in Cornwall. By around 1877 a rail link had been established, travel to the coastal villages became more general, and artists and art lovers were travelling to experience the wonderful quality of Cornish light, tranquil settings and intense colours, as well as the rugged and romantic scenery.

Bushey artists were no exception and this exhibition highlights the work of those who travelled south to gain additional experience.
