Opening for a three-month show on the 16th May at St Petrocs Hotel, Padstow, Rick and Jill Stein are adorning the walls with Kurt Jackson’s latest landscape paintings. These paintings show the trace of the Camel’s river course from the source on the moors down to the mouth between Stepper and Pentire Points.
The paintings have inspired Rick to match what Kurt was painting with cooking. And for those guests who want to take home a piece of the exhibition prices start at £3000. The limited edition catalogue however is a mere £15 – introduced by Kurt and Rick.
The collaboration is a natural process, to celebrate the artistic essence on the Camel with a brand so passionate about the culinary side of the river was a complete meeting of creative minds.
For the first time, The Camel is to be celebrated with food, drink and art – all produced on this great Cornish river. The exhibition will open on 16th May with a private preview and culinary evening attended by Rick Stein and Jill Stein.
The preview evening will include:
- Camel River inspired menu* for dinner at St Petroc’s Hotel & Bistro, Padstow. £70 pp
- A special dinner*, Bed & Breakfast offer available for the preview evening. From £300 for two.
