Celebrate the reopening of the Tate St Ives after an extended refurbishment and extension project by visiting its brilliant brand new exhibition, The Studio and the Sea (31st March-3rd September).

Centring on the ceramics studio, the ocean and the landscape, the Tate will host two stunning art exhibitions alongside each other: Jessica Warboys and ‘That Continuous Thing’.

Large scale paintings, sculptures and films comprise British artist, Jessica Warboys’ first solo show in a UK national gallery, where mythology and landscape will be represented by two specially commissioned works: Sea Painting, Zennor 2015 and film, Hill of Dreams 2016.

Creating her Sea Painting on the beach using mineral pigments and seawater, Jessica’s artwork promises an eye-catching glimpse into her innovative methodology; while Hill of Dreams draws on Arthur Machen’s same titled book detailing rural Gwent – and Jessica’s birthplace.

‘That Continuous Thing: Artists and the Ceramics Studio, 1920-today’ is an exploration of studio pottery from over 50 artists from across the globe, including Japan, Europe and North America.

View master works from Bernard Leach, Shoji Hamada, Ken Price, Richard Slee and Anthea Hamilton spanning a range of 20th century times and genres including the Californian ‘clay revolution’ of the 50s and 60s and the hand-built movement of the 70s and 80s.
