Of Land and Sea: Recent collaborative paintings by Peter Wray and Judy Collins
31st August 2019 - 28th September 2019
Private View: Friday 30th August, 17:30 – 19:30. All welcome.
Peter Wray and Judy Collins have been collaborative painters for some thirteen years, and, since moving to Cornwall in early 2009, have established themselves as an influential and well-respected creative team, both locally and nationally. They enjoy a deep and resonant relationship with Penwith, and nowhere is this more apparent than in their evocative collaborative works.

For this exhibition at the Penwith Gallery, we have decided to return to a more semi-figurative approach to our image-making and our interpretation of subject matter, in order to enable, between the two of us, a more effective dialogue in our search for the ‘essence’ of a particular idea. We hope that this will also enable the viewer to approach the work in a more open and reflective manner, appreciating and enjoying the diversity of interpretation offered by the images they are contemplating.’

Wray & Collins have exhibited widely throughout the country, and their collaborative work is in private and corporate collections, both in the UK and abroad.


Penwith Gallery offers a year-round programme of exhibitions by Society Members and Associates, as well as those by other artists from Cornwall and further afield.
