An exciting exhibition celebrating Cockington Court’s artist-in-residence, James Murch, is on display throughout the gallery and inside the Manor House from 4 February – 25 March, The exhibition documents the artwork James has produced during his 2021-2022 residency and gives an insight into the wide range of processes and mediums that he has used.

Works in progress, sketches, paintings, printmaking, ceramics, sculptures all come together in one exhibition, showing the fruit of this joint endeavour between artist and residency and will surely inspire visitors and the local community.

Visitors will be met with a hand drawn timeline as they enter the exhibition which provides context to the work on show and James’s progress through various projects, showing his growth as an artist. It also documents landmark events along the way which culminated in a visit to Cockington Court last summer by His Majesty King Charles III and the Queen Consort Camilla, who spent time with James and complimented him on his work.

James Murch has been our Artist in residence here at Cockington Court since January 2021. His work is a celebration of the natural world and a lot of his inspiration has come from the open parkland, rural countryside and substantial woodland that surrounds Cockington Court.

An accomplished artist, his work has been shortlisted by the Royal Society of Oil Painters and Portrait Painters and he was a semi-finalist in Sky’s Landscape Artist of the Year.

James Murch, Artist in Residence Exhibition runs from 4 February to 25 March 2023 at Cockington Court’s Gallery. It is free to attend and open to the public daily from 10:30am – 5pm.
