SOTHEBY’S STUDENTS JOIN LIVINGSTONE ST. IVES FOR A UNIQUE SERIES OF MICRO EXHIBITONS
Livingstone St. Ives is delighted to host MA Art Business students from the Sotheby’s Institute of Art for an exciting workshop programme this November.
Boasting students who are set to become the leading international gallerists of the future, the course explores art markets in depth. Having hosted the previous cohort last year, Alicia Livingstone has since guest lectured on the course and appeared on programme director David Bellingham’s podcast, ‘The Art Business’.
This exciting professional collaboration will see the gallery facilitating around 50 students across their newly opened Westcotts Quay space, The St. Ives Arts Club, The Salthouse Gallery, and Host St. Ives’ luxurious restaurant and bar, where they currently source artworks.
Working in small groups, students will have the opportunity to select, curate and hang works from the gallery’s extensive catalogue of exciting artists working in the St. Ives tradition, such as Ken Spooner, Emma Williams, Henrietta Dubrey and Jack Davis, along with a collection of Modern British works kindly on loan from Belgrave St. Ives.
Each group will present their own micro exhibition, which can be enjoyed at the private view on Thursday 10th November. Please join at 3pm at Host St. Ives, Tregenna Hill, St. Ives, TR26 1SE for complimentary prosecco and soft drinks, followed by an art tour of the shows across the other three venues.
RSVP to attend on firstname.lastname@example.org.
The shows will also all be available to view on Friday 11th November, 10am – 5pm, and will be showing online throughout at livingstonestives.co.uk. All work is available to purchase through the gallery. Please contact (+44) 01736 697315 or email@example.com for enquiries.

Waves of colour exhibition
Sharon McSwiney & Alison Dupernex
St Ives Arts Club, Westcott’s Quay, St Ives TR26 2DY
1st – 7th October 2022
A visual feast of colour with artwork, metal wall sculptures & jewellery created by Sharon McSwiney, based in St Ives, alongside fellow creative maker, from Worcestershire, Alison Dupernex’s wearable textile art. Both designers are inspired by the Cornish colours & textures of the landscape.
This exhibition will showcase the variety of work they both produce carefully by hand in their respective studio spaces. This is now an annual coming together of these makers whose work has a strong connection to St Ives.
Silk & cashmere yarns are combined to evoke the colours of the sea & sand with jackets & scarves. While brass & copper is worked into seaweed ‘landscapes’ wall art. Silver limpet shells & seaweed fronds are created into desirable jewellery pieces.
