Spot the Artist  from Thursday 19th September 2018 (setting up) until  Sunday 22nd September. Viewing on Friday 20th and Saturday 21st with the sale itself on Sunday .22nd. Venue Porthmeor Studios, Back Road West, St Ives.

 

‘Spot the Artist 2019’

‘Spot the Artist’ is an annual event which was first organised by the Rotary Club of St Ives during the St Ives September Festival of 2006.

The event is held in Porthmeor Studios, the iconic studio complex which has had close connections with the art  community in St Ives since about 1880. This year the exhibition and sale will be held in the Borlase Smart Room which is at street level and larger than the studio we have used in previous years.  

We invite artists to give a piece of artwork which we then sell to members of the public for a fixed price.  In 2019 this will be £50. We exhibit the artwork in the studio for two days before the sale. The artwork is signed on the reverse side and, in theory, the buyer will not know the identity of the artist until after the sale.

The event will take place on Friday 20th and Saturday 21st September (viewing days)  and Sunday 22nd September 2019 (day of the sale). The proceeds  will be shared, as in previous years, on a 50/50 basis between (1) local arts charities and organisations (including the St Ives School of Painting for work with young people) and (2) charities and local good causes supported by Rotary including Shelterbox and the campaign to eradicate Polio in the world.

 

The event attracts a lot of publicity, increasingly so on the internet and social media. It is very popular with members of the public who, in some cases, queue outside the studio  for upwards of 24 hours before the sale. In 2017, the queue stretched for about 100 yards along Back Road West before the start of the sale.  

 In 2017 many of the participating artists had recently held solo or joint exhibitions in galleries in all parts of the country, and in several cases internationally. In 2018 we hope to display and sell artwork given by at least 300 artists, most of them professional. About one half of the contributors live and work in Cornwall and Devon. The remainder come from other parts of the United Kingdom and from further afield, including Spain, France, Germany, the USA, Hungary and Ireland.  In 2017 about 60 of the generous contributors had artwork selected for inclusion in the prestigious Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in recent years. This year we hope that this figure will rise to over 90.

 

Some artists tell us that in terms of quality and variety of the work, this is the best event of its kind in the country outside London.

Members of the public are allowed to buy up to 3 paintings on their initial visit to the sale. This is to ensure that, as far as possible, there will be something for anyone willing to join the queue. It should also discourage the resale of any artwork after the sale. We are not aware that this has happened in past years.

You might like to have a look at the good, short, YouTube clip about ‘Spot the Artist’ at  stivestv.co.uk/all-st-ives-tv-videos/spot-the-artist-ssf-2015.

 

In 2015 the event raised £10,000. In each of the years 2017 and 2018 the total raised exceeded £13,000. With increased hanging space, and additional  generous contributors, we hope to improve on this figure in 2019.

The members of St Ives Rotary Club  responsible for organising the event are Mike Clough, Anthony Gribbin and John Shearn. They are helped by other members during the event itself. Mike, a retired solicitor, is a trustee of the St Ives School of Painting and of Penwith Galleries Ltd. He also served for some years as a trustee of the Leach Pottery. Anthony retired after many years working  in Arts education is currently the Director of The  National Acrylic Painters' Association.John, also retired, is a keen artist.
