Ken Turner has lived and worked in St Ives since the nineties, and has been a constant
and passionate contributor to the West Penwith Arts ‘scene’, with his memorable live
performances, and provocative paintings. Between Friday 14th Oct and Wed 26th, at the
PZ Gallery in Penzance, Ken will show a selection of his paintings and drawings from the
1960’s to the present. You are warmly invited to the Private View on Friday Oct 14th 5pm

studio practice as a philosophical tool.
On Saturday 22nd October at 5pm there will be a performance at the gallery, where Ken will
collaborate with dancer Stephanie Richards in response to his paintings.
Ken will be in conversation with visual anthropologist Professor Amanda Ravetz on Monday 24th October
