Barrie COOK
1929

Born in Birmingham, where he studied under Bernard Fleetwood-Walker for five years, Cook taught painting and fine art in several colleges of art and universities (listed in Buckman).  In 1992 Cook and his wife moved to Helston, Cornwall, and his work is shown widely and held in several public collections.

A celebrated abstract artist based in Mullion on the Lizard, in 2010 he was invited to select and open the 'Open Art Exhibition' for the fourth annual Newlyn Arts Festival. The work of 52 local artists was chosen for exhibition at NAG (paintings, pottery, sculpture).
