Newlyn Arts Festival coming soon
THIS year organisers of Newlyn Arts Festival are hoping to reflect the community as a whole, as well as the artists themselves, at the port's annual event.
'Newlyn's Choice' is this year's standout feature – a collection of exhibits chosen by residents. The aim is to capture favourites and thoughts from across the port, drawing on inspiration and appreciation from every angle.
Simon Jaques, operations manager at Newlyn Art Gallery, is excited about what is to come and noted the inclusive aspect of 2013's showcase.
"It reflects what the people of Newlyn love," he said. "It's a nice idea. There are lots of different names – it's fresh and will be interesting to see.

Friday night sees the event's opening at the gallery at 7pm, which will be a first viewing of the display alongside music from Baldrick's Plan, a welcome from St Ives' abstract painter Anthony Frost and a few conjured words from poet Bob Devereux.
The exhibition then runs from October 5-19, with a variety of other creative performances peppered throughout the two weeks including a number of literary spectacles, musical performances and insights into surfing heritage through a variety of mediums.
While from Friday 11 to Sunday 13 the festival's famous 'Open Studios' weekend takes place, allowing the public entry into many local artists' studios and creative workspaces to gain an insight into the person behind the painting.
