About Us

8 September – 25 November, 10am - 5pm

Continuing a year exciting and dynamic touring exhibitions and record-breaking visitor numbers, Torre Abbey Museum welcomes The Artists of St. Ives this autumn. On loan from the Arts Council Collection and featuring world-renowned artists such as Ben Nicholson, Alfred Wallis, Barbara Hepworth, Paul Feiler and Terry Frost, The Artists of St Ives Exhibition comes to Torre Abbey Museum from Saturday 8 September to Sunday 25 November.

Displayed across the museum’s galleries and the ballroom, the exhibition boasts a diverse mix of contemporary visual art and is a must-see for artists and art fans alike. The St Ives Society of Artists were a group of artists whose remarkable output was inspired by living and working in the Cornish town of St Ives following the First World War. The artists were at the forefront of a movement which expressed ideas through painting and sculpture and established a focus for modern and abstract British art from the 1940s to the 1960s.

To coincide with the exhibition, Devon Open Studios is showcasing the talent and creative lives of artists living in Devon from Friday 14 September to Sunday 30 September. The Spanish Barn will be hosting a free exhibition featuring a spectacular display of works by Torbay artists. Organised in partnership with Brixham Arts Society, Devon Arts Society, Paignton Arts & Crafts Society and the Torbay Guild of Artists, the exhibition includes a working studio with guest artists demonstrating their crafts each day.

You will also have the opportunity to meet artists face-to-face and join workshops and create your own artwork. Every week artwork from two people will be selected to receive a yearly annual pass for Torre Abbey Museum. 

Entry to the Artists of St Ives Exhibition is included in the normal museum admission. £8/£7 (concs)/Kids and teens go free.
