This is a significant exhibition of eminent women artists based in, or connected to, Cornwall.

At the centre of the exhibition are the paintings and poetry of artist and writer Partou Zia (1958-2008), who was born in Iran and came to England in 1970, settling in Newlyn in 1993.

In 2003, she was the first recipient of the Porthmeor Studio residency, which culminated in an exhibition at Tate St Ives entitled Entering the Visionary Zone.

Zia’s unique way of seeing will be displayed alongside works by her contemporaries and influential figures including: Gillian Ayres, Wilhelmina Barns-Graham, Sandra Blow, Eileen Cooper, Tacita Dean, Naomi Frears, Barbara Hepworth, Rose Hilton, Winifred Nicholson, Shirin Neshat, Aimée Parrott, Nina Royle, Veronica Ryan, Devlin Shea, Lucy Stein and Kate Walters.
