Real Ideas is delighted to announce that Member Mark Fielding, based at Ocean Studios, will be opening his studio gallery to the public from July! 

Over the last few years Mark have been busy working in his studio in and out of lockdowns, plus running the popular Portrait Clinic regularly in the café at Ocean Studios and 2022 is proving to be a busy time for the artist…

Spring has been very busy this year with exhibitions at Delamore Arts and at the Tamar Valley Centre in Cornwall, both opening in May.

At Ocean Studios, Portrait Clinic has continued to produce a steady flow of excellent portrait sketches and I’m looking forward to opening my studio gallery regularly this summer. From July, I’ll be open on Wednesday afternoons from 1 till 4pm and on Fridays from 10am till 4pm. To get started I’m open on Saturday 4th June to coincide with Native Makers.

This summer will be a busy time painting for exhibitions at Falmouth Art Gallery and Cotehele House this autumn. Before that, I will be involved in open studios in August and will be running a number of landscape and portrait workshops in Cornwall and Plymouth, as well as helping launch Ocean Art Club at Ocean Studios in June.

Ocean Studios is open 8:30am-5:30pm every weekday and 10am-5pm on weekends, where you can enjoy coffee, cake and light lunches in our Real Ideas café. You’ll find Mark’s studios upstairs in F32.
