Famous faces, colourful characters and everyday people all feature in this portrait show starring the people of Cornwall.


This striking exhibition was first staged by the gallery in 1987 so twenty years later we thought is was time to present an updated version.


On display will be portraits of men, women and children from the 16th century to the present day, many of which featured in the original show. There will be a mixture of work from our own collection, hung alongside loans from other museums and our well liked automata.
