You can help us!

by expanding our information base about those artists you admire and know best. A structured questionnaire has been designed for this purpose.  Please go to the add new artist info page, and send us your information, which may be in the form of corrections if the artist is already listed. A verification process will be undertaken, and your information added.

Additionally, any books, articles or other ephemera you can donate to the Forbes Reading Room, which is open to all students of art in West Cornwall, will be welcomed and preserved.
