four printmakers (Becky Haughton, Rachael Kantaris, Liz Luckwell and Lynn Pascoe) live in Cornwall and their work seeks to extend the traditions
of the St Ives School. Though separated from Scotland by distance these Cornish
images feel very close to home. Lovers of the Scottish landscape will find
resonance in their expression of light and colour. In this vibrant display of
printmaking landscapes transform into abstract forms and colour itself takes on
