Life of Pye - the art collection of Brenda Pye

Posted 29 November 2016 by

The Entrance Gallery in Falmouth is currently displaying the art collection of Brenda Pye a former art teacher. Running from the 21st November 2016 to the 7th January 2017 at the Falmouth Art Gallery (Municipal Buildings, The Moor, Falmouth, TR11 2RT) this exhibition showcases the recent bequest of her personal art collection, for the first time in public.Since retiring, and living in St Mawes, she mixed with a wide range of local artists and amassed a large eclectic collection of art by names such Terry Frost, Anthony Frost, Roger Hilton, Kurt Jackson, Barry Cook and many others.

The former garage in St Mawes, now the home of the local Gig club, with its old petrol pumps is one of the most photographed buildings in the village. What is less well know is that the building was owned by Brenda Pye and the top floors where, until last year, her home. The building was left in Trust, part of which after a restoration and renovation, will become the permanent home for art collection.
