The line up includes artists, Faye Dobinson, Paul Bawden, Lucy Brown and Caroline Pedler with guest artists James Eddy creating an installation onsite and Rebecca Harvey with her beautifully crafted ceramics, ,with a new edition, Andy Pedler.

hi5 Art Collective are back in Truro and changing spaces for the Art In The City festival in April. Using empty shops to exhibit their work, injecting life into an otherwise dead space.

After a roaring success in September last year, the artists will be showing their work at the other end of Truro. Currently working with Neil Scott from Totally Truro and Cornwall County Council in securing a shop in Boscawen St, for the duration of the art festival. Details yet to be confirmed.

“hi5 are all full time professional artists, so finding time to come together and even organise a meeting can be tricky but we’ve managed to find some time to do some new work and hopefully put on another great show! It’s going to be a lot smaller this year due to the size of the shop we have in mind. That’s not a problem though as we can adapt and that’s half the fun of using empty shops. We’re really excited about getting in there and making it ours, if only for a week or so. Having a new artist on board is exciting too although he’s my brother I’m excited about seeing what he brings to the table, and as siblings it’s also exciting and special about exhibiting in our home town.” hi5 founder Caroline Pedler

They are planning to have an open party with entertainment, along with Nigel from Experience Wine supplying us with some delicious Spanish wine. The Tea Appreciation Society will be hovering around with some tea paraphernalia and probably some home made treats from Mrs Pedlers kitchen and Archie Browns! The launch party will take place on Thur 8th April from 6pm til late.

hi5 will not only be exhibiting work in Truro but have also been asked to do a similar event in St Austell at the end of May for two weeks. Working with St Austell County Council they will be using empty shop spaces within the Old Market House. Encouraging people to come into the town, to use the Old Market building and experience something inspiring and different.
