We are delighted to present Praed & Piper, an exhibition of recent paintings by two of Cornwall's foremost contemporary artists. Michael Praed and John Piper's careers have followed similar paths for over 40 years. They were art teachers together in Penzance, initially at Lescudjack School and later at Humphrey Davy School. Both gave up teaching in the mid-1990s to take up painting full-time and each developed a strong following: Michael for his studies of the harbours of West Cornwall; John for his landscapes of the Penwith peninsula. Throughout this time they have been, and remain, very close friends. They are regular visitors to each other's studio and are both key members of the Penwith Gallery in St Ives, the prestigious collective established by Barbara Hepworth and Ben Nicholson.

Praed & Piper is a show undertaken in collaboration with The Darryl Nantais Gallery in Linton, Cambridgeshire. We have been neighbours of The Darryl Nantais Gallery at art fairs around the country but this is our first exhibition together. We hope you'll be able to join us all for a drink at one of our Private Views.

The paintings below are available to purchase now, either from ELEVEN AND A HALF, or from the Darryl Nantais Gallery itself (01223 891289). You can download a brochure here.
