September 20-27, 2019
As You Like It Tours, a local luxury small-group travel company, is partnering with the The Arts Center of Clemson to provide our members with the opportunity to travel to Cornwall, England in September 2019.
The trip is geared toward artists and art enthusiasts. In addition to luxury accommodations, transportation and sightseeing activities, the trip includes admission to the Barbara Hepworth Museum & Sculpture Garden, the Tate St. Ives, the Bernard Leach Pottery, and the Penlee House Gallery & Museum.
The Economist raves, "Cornwall, a peninsula county in England's sunniest south-west tip, has long been a muse to artists. Painters are drawn to its expansive beaches, granite cliffs picturesque harbours and quality of light. The 1994 opening of a Tate gallery in St. Ives, on the wild Atlantic north coast, boosted the town's artistic credentials. Newlyn, on the the gentler south coast, is less well-known despite having a longer artistic heritage. The Newlyn School, active from the 1880's to the beginning of the 20th century, was an important chapter in the history of British impressionism."
