LANDLORDS of a Falmouth pub are giving up wall space for local artists to sell their work.

Mark and Hanna Martin want to showcase talent at the Cutty Sark Inn, which they took over two years ago this month.

Mark said: "We would like these images (see above) to inspire artists to create an artwork capturing or illustrating the view from Cutty Sark Inn. The space will be broken down in to areas for each artist to create their work.”

After opening the pub in August 2017 following extensive renovations, the couple have been working hard to build a successful business.

They are now at a point where they can start looking at some of the projects that were in their original hopes and plans, one of which was to build relationships and work with local artists.

The pub affords fantastic views across the estuary, from the industrial, grey ships to pleasure sailing, the bay, green hills and the ever-changing weather.

The owners are looking for artists to interpret and create an original piece across multiple medias, to include ink, water, collage, illustration, textiles, 3D, moving image.

The space will be commercial, so pieces can be sold. A nominal ten per cent commission will be charged and donated to a local charity.

Each piece that is exhibited will be limited to a maximum three-month period to ensure the project is ever evolving.

The section will be allocated by Mark and Hanna for the artist to interpret in their chosen media. Artists can collaborate if they wish.

Although they aren’t looking to curate the space, their decision as to whether it will be included is final.

The brief is for artists to create something that they believe represents the space they have been allocated.

The pub is in Grove Place, near the National Maritime Museum Cornwall.
