Tom Cross was well known as a painter, teacher and writer. He exhibited his work regularly after graduating from The Slade (mid 1950s) as well as holding a number of educational positions culminating in Principal of Falmouth School of Art (1976 - 1987). Following retirement from Falmouth, he continued to write, lecture and paint. One of his most important achievements was the publication of 'Painting the Warmth of the Sun' (first published 1984) a book about the St Ives Modernist period that helped prepare the ground for the founding of the Tate Gallery in St Ives (opened 1993).
This exhibition brings together paintings and prints covering the artist's career from his time at The Slade to the late Helford River paintings.
