Catherine Dennis has lived and worked in Portreath since 1972. Originally a teacher of art for some 25 years, she has worked in a wide range of media, including painting in oil, textiles and print making. Her subject is primarily landscape and she works in oil, often en plein air.
An American etcher who had studied in his native Boston, Provincetown and with the FORBES SCHOOL in Newlyn.
He was especially interested in drawing dogs, and was the creator of the Black and White Scottie ads for beer and liquor companies. Abroad, in the 1930s, he also spent time working in Ireland. He died in Florida.
Born in Lambeth, London he studied at the Leeds College of Art. After an original career in educational publishing, he and his wife Anne moved to Cornwall in 1996 to continue painting full-time. Locally, his work (paintings of people on the beaches and mainly in holiday mood) is shown at the Waterside Gallery, St Ives (2010).
The artist appears first by name in the Newlyn cuttings book in a 1926 review by 'Toestrap' for the Cornishman as an exhibitor of crafts in the Summer Exhibition of Arts & Crafts (unspecified).
In 1928, specification is made that leatherwork was shown. It is likely that this craftworker may also have shown at Newlyn as early as 1925, as the same reviewer comments 'There is lots of leather-work, some of it made with a delightful Moroccan filigree effect...' when referring to the Winter Exhibition of that year.
Born in Surbiton, Kingston upon Thames on 4 October, 1854 (GRO) into a large and wealthy German merchant family, Detmold studied at Atelier Carolus Duran in Paris, and in Dusseldorf, Munich and Brussels.
He arrived in Newlyn around 1885, and is mentioned as one of the Newlynites who comprised the original Newlyn colony. He played as part of the Newlyn team in the cricket matches that transpired against St Ives, and also in the Artists of West Cornwall XI against Penzance (1888). In 1889 he took lodgings for a few months in St Ives, at 7 Bellair Terrace, as many of the early Newlyners did.
The subjects he painted were scenes in England, France, Cairo and North Africa. He exhibited his work in the newly refurbished Lanham's Gallery in 1898, and took part in the Dowdeswells Exhibition of 1890 with three paintings. By that time, however, he was living in London, having married Miss Julia Lane (b 1863 in Mensthe & Moselle, France). They subsequently lived in Hastings and St Leonards from around 1892, before giving an address in Paris in 1900.
He is mentioned in one of Stanhope FORBES' letters in 1885, and was known to stay at Belle Vue House, Newlyn, remaining only six months before moving to Cliff House in Fore Street. Much more aligned with Newlyn than St Ives, he was nevertheless a founder member of STIAC during his brief time there, shortly thereafter leaving for London.
Henry Detmold was the uncle of the highly regarded artist twins, Charles Maurice DETMOLD (1883-1908) and Edward Julius DETMOLD (1883-1957), and helped another sister and brother-in-law to bring up their nephews as visual artists and illustrators.
The artist died in Paris, and is buried in the Pere Lachaise cemetery.
Born in Dorking, Surrey, Bob studied graphic design at Kingston School of Art before moving to St Ives, Cornwall in 1965. He founded (along with his first wife Jenny DEVEREUX) the Salt House Gallery in St Ives in 1979, where both artists showed their own work in addition to giving many aspiring and well-known artists the opportunity to hold solo exhibitions.
Bob is also a performance poet, raconteur, musician and librettist, and with his second wife Pauline LIU-DEVEREUX continues to actively support the creative arts in West Cornwall. The Salt House Gallery closed its doors finally in 2009. His work has also been exhibited at Rainyday Gallery, Penzance.
First wife of artist and poet Bob DEVEREUX, and co-manager of the Salt House Gallery, St Ives, for many years, Jenny was a watercolour artist and printmaker with a strong organisational flair. Their artist daughter Zara, brought up in the artist colony of St Ives, also worked in enamels.
