Once again we are extremely impressed by our visitors' effortless style and coordination with the Patrick Heron exhibition 👀
Showing how it is done are the brilliant @pipthemoonbeam and @graciella____ on their recent trips to the gallery 🔥
'Hepworth's environmental sculpture is never impersonal, or merely architectural in function. It is ... conceived as something the spectator may inhabit ... so that he may feel the sculpture to be an actual extension of himself'
Edward Mullins quote from 1970 perfectly describes FOUR SQUARE (WALK THROUGH), 1966 - a rare opportunity to get up close and literally 'walk through' this striking sculpture. Whatever the weather you will always see it in a new light.
To find out more about this art work, search FOUR SQUARE (WALK THROUGH) on our website.

We have an exciting morning of music, in the beautiful Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden, on 13 September with singer-songwriter Gwenno. What a wonderful way to start your day! 🍃
Gwenno has created her new album, Le Kov (The Place of Memory) entirely in Cornish. With songs referencing Peter Lanyon and the St Ives School, and another to Cornwall’s clogged roads in the summertime, Gwenno’s beautiful, stirring music is a celebration of all the things that Cornwall – and the Cornish language – has to offer.
We have always maintained we have the most stylish of visitors, with impeccable taste, so we really enjoy seeing your beautifully coordinated pictures! 📷
We are going to start sharing some of our favourites with you, kicking off with this dapper chap @emilbird1 - we are loving these St Ives summer vibes! ☀️
This Sunday, Janet Axten, Patrick Heron's personal assistant from 1988, tells stories about her time working with Heron and will read excerpts from his writings.
Free with your Tate membership or locals pass (only £5 and available to anyone with a Cornwall postcode). Search for 'St Ives Stories' on our website to find out more about this unique event.
"I have always been interested in oval or ovoid shapes. The first carvings were simple realistic oval forms of the human head or of a bird. Gradually my interest grew in more abstract values - the weight, poise, and curvature of the ovoid as a basic form" Barbara Hepworth.
We love seeing your images of the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden, the current weather is perfect for a visit, here are a few pictures 'looking through'... at Barbara Hepworth Museum
