The Alverton Gallery’s featured artist for August/September 2015 was Chris Tate, mentioned in The Cornishman newspaper 20 August 2015 with this article:
Tate at the Alverton with Art of Storytelling
An artist whose fine attention to detail gives his work a highly distinctive and instantly recognisable identity, Carnon Downs based artist Chris Tate is now enjoying an exhibition of his paintings in the Alverton Gallery, Penzance.
One who studied at the Falmouth School of Art where he gained a degree in illustration, since then he has overcome what might be described as one of life’s challenges and now has a considerable following and reputation for his work. Growing up and being educated in Cornwall, he confesses how he has always been particularly interested in architecture and the built environment saying: “Cornwall for me isn’t just about the sea. It’s about the towns, villages and random buildings.”
Inspired by reportage styles, and paintings as a means of storytelling, although he has exhibited at the Lander Gallery in Truro for several years, this is the first time he has shown in Penzance. Well worth a visit, admission is free, and Chris Tate’s paintings can be seen in the Alverton Gallery, Penzance, 9.30 am to 5 pm, Tuesday to Saturday, until September 25th.
