This summer, the King Harry Ferry will be exhibiting artwork by local artists John Dyer and Joanne Short.

The series of prints, reminiscent of vintage 1930s travel posters, capture the subtropical beauty of the Fal River area. Bursting with colour, the artwork showcases the villages, beaches, and harbours that can be found on this spectacular area of coastline.

The husband and wife team have spent the last 25 years travelling around the coast of Cornwall and painting its scenery.

John said: "We love Cornwall and it’s beauty, colours, flowers and life that the county is bursting with. It is our inspiration to paint, to celebrate life and to bring the energy and optimism that we see to a wider audience.

“Our vintage style art posters allow us to reach that audience and to combine fabulous contemporary Cornish art with vintage typography to evoke a real sense of travel. To be able to exhibit a series of these works on the King Harry Ferry is just perfect. Travel poster art on a form of transport in one of the most beautiful parts of the world. We very much hope that the exhibition will bring sunshine and fun to all who view.”

The ferry connects St Mawes and the Roseland with Feock, Truro and Falmouth creating a key transport link for visitors and locals alike. This latest exhibition aims to promote the area as a top visitor destination, and inspire passengers to discover some of it’s hidden secrets.

Garrick Royle, managing director of the King Harry Ferry, said: “We are delighted to showcase the work of two such prestigious local artists. The artwork brings great colour and life to the ferry, and really encapsulates the area’s extraordinary beauty.”

The pop up exhibition will be on display until the end of September.
