Patrick WOODROFFE

1940—

Patrick Woodroffe was born in Halifax but has lived in Falmouth since 1964. He is a Surrealist artist known throughout Europe and has exhibited in many different countries over the years. His love of the irrational was fostered bySir Roland PENROSE, the Surrealist artist and critic. It was through Penrose's influence that Patrick had his first solo exhibition at the Institute of Contemporary Art in London.

Woodroffe was involved in a Falmouth Art Gallery project which raised awareness of the relationship between an image and its frame.

Caro WOODS

Caro Woods' work is concerned with the 'formal aspects of landscape, as well as the hidden structures in the anatomy of the land.'  She has exhibited widely throughout Europe and Africa, as well as the UK and Channel Islands.  Her commissions include assignments for local interest magazines, and the illustration of a gardening book with over 80 line drawings.  Woods is also an experienced teacher, whose community work has strengthened her belief in the therapeutic power of art.

Alongside her art practice, she runs experimental workshops on themes based on the local environment.

John Goodrich Wemyss WOODS

—1944

He first exhibited in 1889 when he was living in Newbury, and his first RA success was in 1922, by which time he was at Burnham, Buckinghamshire. By 1927 he was resident at Seaford in Sussex.

His subjects were taken from all over Southern England, and it can only be assumed that he joined STISA after a visit to St Ives, as no other Cornish connection has been established. Due to distance, however, he was not a regular exhibitor.

Horace J WOOLEY

An advertisement in the St Ives Times (1917) was for an Artist's Exhibition at The Cottage, Treveal, 11th-14th September, with Meredith STARR, Horace J Wooley and Lady Mary STARR. The works were said to "demonstrate new methods of execution and conception."

Since visiting West Penwith on a short painting trip in the winter of 2004/05, his main body of work has been "en plein air" oil studies of coastal Cornwall.'

A full resume of his art training and his extensive exhibition list is available on his website, from which the above statement is taken.

Bernard John WORDEN

1927—

Paintings by this artist form part of the collection of the National Maritime Museum, Falmouth.

Dorothy WORDEN

1868—

According to the 1891 and 1901 Censuses, Dorothy Worden was born in Newcastle on Tyne, Northumberland, however it has not been possible as yet to trace her family located there, and it may be that they lived there only briefly. One Worden family, the head being a photographer, from Camborne, Cornwall had briefly re-located to Newcastle, and it may be that Dorothy had some Cornish family, but this is conjecture only at present.

In 1891 the artist, age 23, is listed as lodging in Hammersmith, London. By 1893 she had become a member of the St Ives Arts Club (STIAC) and her paintings, some of which were St Ives subjects, were being exhibited at the RCPS (1893,1894 and 1896), the RBA and the County Fisheries Exhibition at Truro (1893).

In 1896, Dorothy Worden married the artist William E OSBORN, who had also been working in St Ives, at Exeter, and it seems that the couple settled in a small village, Withycombe Raleigh, near Exmouth, which became his exhibiting address up until about 1901-2.  In 1901, Dorothy is recorded in the Census as a lodger with a slightly older couple in Ludlow, Herefordshire (now Shropshire). In 1902 Will Osborn also uses Ludlow as an exhibiting address for London shows of work.

Dorothy Osborn continued to paint after her marriage.  In the summer of 1905 she exhibited watercolours at the Ryder Gallery, London and these were positively reviewed in The Studio (1905). She remarried in January 1907, after her first husband's death the previous year, to Commander Harold Ernest Browne RN of Devon.
