Shopper’s Diary: Hooper & Shaw in Cornwall, England

September 28, 2011

Artists Nicole Heidaripour and Daniel Scott left London for the seaside village of Port Isaac in Cornwall in 2008 and opened Hooper & Shaw, a gallery showcasing the work of local artists. "It is our aim to promote the original and the hand made—featuring work that has it roots in traditional and skilled techniques, yet that explores unusual and contemporary styles and ideas," they say. We especially like their whimsically worded posters bearing slogans like "Love Me, Love My Dog" and "Kettle On, Feet Up." To see more, go to Hooper & Shaw.
