New gallery opens on Arwenack Street
Gallery 31 opens on Friday 28th May 2010 with a huge range of fantastic affordable prints ranging from £5 to £90. Showcasing local artwork and hoping to build relations with the students of University College Falmouth the gallery is set to provide an array of prints for everyone’s taste.
Proud ties: Martin Trevorrow, owner of Gallery 31, stands by his mother's artwork in the gallery.
Gallery 31 on Arwenack Street is the new art venture of Martin Trevorrow, although he doesn’t start his adventure alone, his family are completely behind him. His uncle and aunt own Gallery 38 in St Ives where his father also works and his mother Judi Trevorrow exhibits some of her own renowned work in both galleries.
“The best thing is being able to work with family,” explains Martin as he looks around the shop as friends paint the walls ready for the imminent opening. “Not only can I show my mother’s work but I am with my uncle and father doing the same as they do in St Ives with Gallery 38.”
If you are in need for something to finish off any home, guest house, hotel or if you want to give a special present to someone you love why not go to Gallery 31 for a beautiful print; with such a range in stock there is sure to be something for everyone. If you are not ready for a piece of wall art just yet then make sure you browse the exquisite handmade jewellery or silk scarves on display.
The Trevorrow family are also very keen to accept new work from local talent to provide tourists with knowledge of the area around the gallery that only a resident’s pencil can capture. Knowing that the University College Falmouth is maturing many fine artists and craft artists into graduation they are keen to see their work as well.
Gallery 31 is sure to become a wonderful link to Falmouth talent for all that visit.

Notes to Editor
Gallery 31 is owned by Martin Trevorrow who has not been in the art industry before now but is working alongside uncle Bryan Trevorrow who owns the locally popular Gallery 38 on the Wharf at St Ives.
Gallery 31 will be open ten am till five pm Monday to Saturday. It also will be open Sundays ten till four. There will be limited and open edition prints in stock with or without frames, also jewellery and silk scarves will be on display and for sale.
If anyone takes own work into the gallery and Martin feels it would benefit the gallery there is a chance that he can publish and get prints licensed. The artist would receive money from the sale minus a commission for selling through the gallery.
Martin Trevorrow’s mother, Judi Trevorrow, is a popular local artist who showcases and sells her work in her families’ galleries as well as lectures on art courses. www.juditrevorrow.com
