artopia Artopia is based in Cornwall and London. They run an arts agency in Falmouth to support and provide exposure for both emerging and established artists and also run Artopia London, our gallery. Artopia announces This Wild West, the inaugural exhibition to launch their London gallery. A celebration of new art with a link to Cornwall, This Wild West will feature a showcase of works by alumni of Falmouth School of Art.

This Wild West delivers a diverse range of media from traditional oil paint to digital print, with no named theme or style. But, the works hold a similar sensibility: they tell a story of something wild and mysterious.

Eloise Wall, Co-Director of Artopia Cornwall has a history of producing cutting edge contemporary art and This Wild West, curated by Rosie ThomsonGlover, hopes to further develop this outstanding reputation.

“Artopia is inspired by the bounty of creative talent developed in Cornwall and we feel it is the right time to provide a platform for these artists in London.”

Cornwall based artists Faye Dobinson, Alex Goodman, James Hankey, Alice Mahoney, Marc Messenger, Ben Sanderson, Juliet Walshe are showing alongside Jacob-Louis Beaney, Matthew Benington, Isabella Bostock, Jessica Everitt and George Morgan, graduates who are now practicing across the UK. Artopia have selected a group of emerging artists who at some point in their practice have laid down roots in Cornwall. They now weave together personal and historical threads that stem from ambiguous places and unexpected perspectives.
