Beatrice Brown – THE N0THING SERIES – 23 March–23 April 2017

Falmouth BA(Hons) Fine Art alumna Beatrice Brown is about to open her first solo exhibition in London. ‘THE N0THING SERIES’ is curated by James Birch and opens at Gallery 46 in Whitechapel on March 23, 2017 until 23 April. 

The works in this exhibition bear witness to inner visions that Brown has had from as early as six years old, when she transposed her inner turmoil and confusion onto seeing the ‘Fire Child’, a character that spoke to her from within the flames of a hearth. The sheer compressed power of the sculptural work is analogous to the potency of material transformation in alchemy, of the Jungian Nigredo, the black beginning – The Nothing Series.

Beatrice graduated from Fine Art in Falmouth in 2013, and was shortlisted for the Midas Award in that year, exhibiting that autumn at Millennium Gallery, St. Ives (now Anima-Mundi). Her solo exhibition features a new collection of drawings.


Gallery 46 is a new art-space from Martin J Tickner, Sean McLusky, Martin Bell and Wai Hung Young in Whitechapel, London’s long-standing centre of radicalism and independence, has developed from the non-conformist curatorial approach they deployed at Redchurch Street’s infamous MEN Gallery.









The Midas Award 2013 Exhibition

Private View and Award Ceremony Friday 08 November, Millennium Gallery, St Ives.

The Midas Award Exhibition returns for its eighth year to the Millennium Gallery, St Ives with last year’s winner, Rosanna Catterall, presenting a solo show. She will exhibit a collection of new works alongside five other Fine Art graduates from Falmouth University who were shortlisted in June for this year’s Midas Award, the winner of which will be announced on Friday 8 November at the private view of their group show.

Rosanna will be exhibiting alongside her contemporaries: Isabella Bostock, Beatrice Brown, Sam Cotterell, Emma Ford and Marc Messenger, whose work was selected on the strength of work displayed in their final degree exhibition.

The exhibition this autumn promises a range of art forms including painting, sculpture, sound art and film installation, and will engage visitors as they move through the three floors of the gallery.

The exhibition is open until 26 November. Admission to this event and the exhibition is free.
