The grandson of artist Winifred Nicholson was in Falmouth recently to attend the preview of an exhibition of her work and give a talk on his famous grandmother.

Jovan Nicholson has co-curated the exhibition Winifred Nicholson: Liberation of Colour, which is currently on display at Falmouth Art Gallery. Falmouth is the only southern venue for this major touring exhibition which brings together an important selection of works created throughout her career, including her visit to Pill Creek on The Fal in Cornwall.

Winifred and her then husband, fellow artist Ben Nicholson, who later had triplets with sculptor Barbara Hepworth, visited Cornwall in the summer of 1928. At first they stayed near Feock, overlooking Pill Creek but also stayed in a flat overlooking the harbour in St Ives.

Jovan, and independent art historian, attended the exhibition preview at the gallery where he also gave a talk on his grandmother's life and work.

The exhibition runs until September 16 and entry is free. Falmouth Art Gallery is open from Monday to Saturday from 10am to 5pm.
