We are working with Jerwood Arts to deliver six artists’ residencies, collectively known as The Jerwood Newlyn Residency, between 2021 and 2023. The residencies provide an extraordinary opportunity for artists to develop their own practice with the full support of the wider gallery team and its network.

2022 & 2023 RESIDENCIES

We have now recruited for the final four residencies, which will take place in 2022 and 2023

Libita Sibungu currently lives and works in West Cornwall, where she grew up – a daughter to Namibian and English parents. As an
interdisciplinary artist, Sibungu’s solo and collaborative projects collage together text, performance, drawing, print, photography, and sound.

Claye Bowler

May & June 2023

Claye Bowler is a sculptor and performance artist working with themes of the queer body and the archive. For this residency he will explore interactions of body and landscape in the sea, beach and inland; comparing himself, artists, and the public.
