TR-FIFTEEN Extended! Social Event
You are invited to the Social Evening on Saturday 30th June 6-9pm. So bring a bottle, any instruments and ideas...
This exciting exhibition showcasing some of the contemporary art being produced in Redruth is being extended for another weekend. There will be some changes to the show - Chris Anthem has had to take down his paintings due to other commitments, so in their place, we are going to line the gaps on the walls with paper and create a space for people to create mind maps explore ideas and visions. We will also bring in an array of instruments to encourage people to join in and have fun. This is to be all inclusive - the more non-musicians the better. in fact perhaps we'll exclude people that can play! The results of these playful experiments with sound, writing and mind-mapping may feed into future projects
Admission is free and all are welcome

CMR presents... TR-FIFTEEN
There will be an opening social event on the evening of Saturday 16 June between 5pm – 9pm, which will be followed by the gig at Gaslights from 9.15pm - all welcome.
After opening its doors in March of this year, Redruth based Contemporary Art initiative CMR has already garnered a reputation for its presentation of engaging and thought provoking contemporary art exhibitions. Continuing in this tradition the third show from CMR, TR-Fifteen, opens at the Redruth venue on Friday 15 June.
TR-Fifteen has a simple manifesto and that is to show the work of a selection of contemporary artists working in Redruth today. Rather than a historically charged survey of the area this is an opportunity to embrace the present and showcase the work of some extremely exciting artists working within the TR15 postcode.
With the likes of Krowji, Back Lane West and CMR all based in the town and supporting the contemporary visual arts there is definitely a breath of fresh positive energy circulating amongst the town’s resident artists and this show aims to capture that spirit with this collection of diverse and exciting work.
The show will feature works from sound installation artist Dom Allen, painters Chris Anthem, Charmaine Honeychurch and Duncan Hopkins, installations from Liam Jolly, Lee McIntyre and Alice Mahoney plus sculptural interventions from artist George Meyrick and more.
TR-Fifteen hopes to build on the success of CMR’s last show, Save Our Placards! and continue to showcase the CMR vision of exhibiting adventurous work that not only responds to the buildings physical spaces but that’s also flexible in its attitude towards mixing and crossing forms in presenting a thought provoking, exciting and engaging show.
To coincide with the towns Murdoch Day celebrations there will be a special evening viewing/social event on Saturday 16 June from 6pm – 9pm that will be followed by CMR’s first music event to be held at the popular Redruth venue Gaslights from 9.15pm and will feature live performances from Redruth based bands Hanterhir, Mister Postman and Gareth Lee. Admission to both is free and all are welcome
TR-Fifteen will be open Fri/Sat/Sun 15, 16, 17 and again the following week 22, 23, 24 June
Due to unforeseen circumstances Dom Allen has not been able to take part in the show. We hope that he will be able to show his fantastic creations in some future event.
__CMR is an artist-led initiative designed to create a community of artists who will exhibit and flourish within this three storey building. It is a voluntary-run organisation and project. We aim to be all inclusive; we aim to encourage adventurous work that will respond and challenge not only to CMR’s various spaces but also the broader Contemporary Art landscape of Cornwall.
