A Certain Kind of Light: Light in Art Over Six Decades is a major exhibition exploring how artists have responded to light, its transience and effect. Encompassing paintings, sculpture, photography, and installation, it features artworks created from the 1960s to the present day by fifteen leading artists.

The exhibition considers the different ways artists have explored the various aspects of light, from its importance as a source of illumination, as a pure sculptural material, as a mysterious force and as a source of energy that can be conceptually converted into other forms.

It includes Colour Construction by Peter Lanyon who was a leading figure at Newlyn Art Gallery in the 1950s and 60s, as well as camera-less photographs by Garry Fabian Miller who had a solo show here in 2008.

As part of the exhibition, and to mark the tenth anniversary of the opening of The Exchange, Cornwall-based artist Peter Freeman will reprogramme and update Lightwave, the dramatic artwork illuminating the glass façade of The Exchange that he first created when the gallery opened in 2007.
