Exhibition - Nil Desperandum


Nil Desperandum - Fore Street St Ives


A great new art exhibition has sprung up on Fore Street.

Nil Desperandum is a response by a group of contemporary artists to the legacy of John Knill - former mayor of St Ives who commissioned the Knill Monument.

The Knill Family motto 'Nil Desperandum' is carved into the monument and translates from its original Latin to 'Never Despair' - an appropriate sentiment for these hard times !

Work exhibited is from a diverse group of Cornwall and international artists.

It is in Knill's former house at 50 Fore Street - near to the corner of The Digey.

This really is worth a visit - I was there on the opening night and can thoroughly recommend it. The work is varied, original and in a range of different media.

Its open every day (except Sunday 19th) until Chistmas Eve when it closes - so don't miss it !
