Fred’s local gallery was Avalon Art situated just a short walk down the lane from Hazel Cottage. Avalon Art is a small unassuming treasure trove on Marazion’s West End run by Fred’s favourite dealer Sally Scott….
Fred was so fond of Sally that he painted her portrait and also immortalised her
in the painting “them Monteycarleans arnt arf posh but I’d swap the lot for our
Sall and Blackie”….
Avalon was a great outlet for Fred to sell his paintings and tourists loved
the local flavour of his bright and joyous views. Fred in turn loved to paint
for the man in the street and became more liberal with his paint, filling his
canvases with the colourful characters he saw parading through the town.
Fred loved to include as many colourful characters as possible in his paintings.
