Picturing the Mines & Travelogue Kernow

We are pleased to support this touring exhibition of work created by the artists Jesse Leroy Smith and Bernard Irwin to commemorate the ‘Tinth’ Anniversary of the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site last year.
Since embarking on their journey through Cornwall’s mining landscapes and heritage Bernard and Jesse have been working on the copper plates for the Cornwall and Devon Mining World Heritage Site suite of etchings. Printed at John Howard’s Penryn print studio the suite of ten prints are now on a tour throughout Cornwall. As they travelled they were joined along the way by a host of artists, mining experts and enthusiasts, geologists, historians, archivists, book conservators and members of the public who all contributed through their participation to the richness of the experience and the depth of content so evident in the final suite of ten prints.

Each print is treated uniquely, some are printed from multiple plates and some are hand coloured; specific processes are given with the titles along with a few words about the image. Individual prints can be purchased with special rates for complete or partial suites.
