John Dyer the celebrated Cornish painter will go back to his roots in many ways when painting at Newquay Zoo for the Darwin200 celebrations in 2009.
John grew up near Newquay at Holywell Bay and has spent time overseas painting plants and animals in many places linked to the zoo’s overseas projects including the Philippines, an area the zoo will be representing in its new Philippine exhibit in 2009.
A successful application to the Heritage Lottery Fund has led the Falmouth Art Gallery to receive an award of £50,000 to undertake a year long project to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Darwin (1809-1882).
Devoran School celebrated its First Birthday with a special ceremony including the official unveiling of the school’s new two metre ceramic mural, dance, poetry and musical performances by pupils and cream teas for guests. Staff, pupils and governors from the school moved into their new £3 million building in September last year. Now, twelve months on, they staged an Open Afternoon to celebrate the move and enable local residents and invited guests to look around their new school. Guests included former headteachers, staff and governors, members of local scouts, guides and brownie groups, members of Feock parish council and the local Parochial Church Council.
With 100,000 people due in the town the gallery has partnered with Carrick Council and the Falmouth Tall Ships to enable 5 point of displays to be set up around the town and by the Tall Ships to display the official Limited Edition Print and Official Programme.
