Artists: Merlyn Chesterman, Julia Manning, Rod Nelson, Ian Phillips & Judith Westcott
Pine Feroda is the collective name used by five artists working together in the South West of England to make dramatic large scale woodblock prints of the coast. All creative decisions are taken collectively. Pine Feroda does not follow the style of any one individual; there is no hierarchy and a new artistic identity has been created with a life of its own.
As well as their work with Pine Feroda, each of the artists has an extensive background of successful printmaking, without which the collaboration would not work.
Main gallery. Open daily, 10am-5.30pm. Free entry.
EVENTS: Launch Party & Meet the Makers (both 20 May)

Nothing short of mirror smooth will satisfy...
