Discover Britain's Cornish artists at Two Temple Place. The exhibition, Amongst Heroes: The Artist in Working Cornwall, is on between the 26th January - 14th April, and displays works that represent workmen and women from the period of 1880-1920. It is a celebration of under appreciated artists, particularly from the areas of Newlyn and St Ives, who had a longstanding interest in the depiction of rural landscapes merging with industrial activity.

There are many events happening in conjunction with the exhibit, including your customary tours & talks, but there will also be some other exciting activities such as a Secret Ballet , a life drawing class, crochet workshops, and music nights. The Pants Pirate will be a fun and education experience for children between three and seven, and they can also enjoy seeing themselves as a heroic figure in Smile, You're in the Picture!

The exhibit is free, but you can buy tickets for some of the events by calling 0207 836 3715.
