Theo Crutchley-Mack: Gwedh - A story of Cornish Trees

8 - 19 March 2023

A tree inhabits a well deserved spot in our landscape. A self sculpted survival story of twists, forks and scars. ‘Gwedh – A story of Cornish Trees’ is an exhibition featuring a new series of paintings by local artist Theo Crutchley-Mack.

Inspired by his time living in Cornwall, over the past year Theo has been exploring the county in search of eight iconic trees. From Bude to Helston, the trees were chosen for their age, beauty and local significance.
