Anna and Annis from Shallal Dance Theatre – exploring studio photography

Shallal Studios and Friends

Open Evening Friday 31st October 2014

Come and see the large range, and scale, of work produced during the residency at BLW – and meet the artists!

Welcome to Shallal Studios, an inclusive platform for artists in Cornwall and a contemporary forum for inclusive arts everywhere. Shallal enjoys working in cross art forms and we are excited about this residency opportunity to explore new work.

The residency will incorporate as many Studio artists and associate artists as possible, to enable artists to work on a bigger scale, explore installations, projection, new collaborations, performance and cross art forms. We have Jo Lumber as writer in residence for one week, thanks to a partnership with Falmouth Art Gallerys new project.
