Lunch with Artist
Ever since we had a panic about the empty walls in the week before re-opening The Gurnard’s Head in 2006, we’ve loved showing off the work of those who paint and draw in the mesmeric landscapes of the South West.

This June we welcome Catherine Harvey Jefferson to the short list of those who have had solo exhibitions with us. Her seascapes “West Coast Paintings” will be hung at The Old Coastguard and you are most welcome to attend the preview on Friday 15 June and drink our wine and intercept our canapés. More below, including information on how you can sign up to two events we are running with Catherine this summer.

For more information on art at EATDRINKSLEEP do contact us here.


Catherine's dynamic seascapes can be viewed at The Old Coastguard from 16 June - 9 September. Her work captivates the moody seas and ever-changing light of Penwith's dramatic coastline. Originally from Cornwall, Catherine went to Falmouth Collage of Art and then Winchester School of Art to study a Fine Art Degree in Painting. She lived on Bodmin Moor, Dartmoor and The North Downs before permanently moving to West Penwith in 2005.  
The West Coast Paintings is a collection of paintings, prints and drawings, inspired by the celtic sea and landscapes of Penwith, Scotland and Ireland.

The exhibition will preview on Friday 15 June from 5pm.  
All welcome for wine & canapés.

at The Gurnard's Head

The Artist of the Month at The Gurnard's Head showcases 6 pieces of work by a different artist. June's Artist is Adrienne Peverall. To see her work, turn directly right when you enter the bar.  

Adrienne started printmaking in 1989 and was lucky enough to be taught etching by Sheila Oliner. Exhibiting her etchings with a group Penwith Printmakers, together they produced a book, Ten Penwith Printmakers. She now works with monoprints using etching inks to produce vivid colours.  

Adrienne lives on the western side of Carn Galva on Penwith Moors, her work is inspired by the colours in Summer and Autumn; the purple of heather, the yellow of gorse and the rich orange and brown of bracken. She uses the inks to recreate these colours and adds a narrative to the landscape.


David Williams
Back in the Beacons, we've long enjoyed having the opportunity to show the work of David Williams who paints Welsh (and beyond) landscapes in oil. His work has always been immensely popular with our guests and it isn't unusual for us to come into work to a new gap on the wall as another of his paintings is snapped up.

More recently, an old friend of The Griffin, Toose Morton has recently started painting and her rapid development into a successful artist is no surprise. You can find her work in the Aga Room.
EATDRINKSLEEP have been exhibiting and promoting the work of over twenty Cornish based artists at both The Old Coastguard and The Gurnard's Head for the last 6 years, showing a range of paintings, prints and drawings all varying in size and price. The style ranges from figurative pieces by Richard Guy or Martin Bowie to the gestural landscapes of Maggie O’Brien and Paul Wadsworth and the more abstract work of Paul Armitage and Trudy Montgomery. All works are for sale.
