With John MILLER, Michael Truscott set up a contemporary art gallery in Chapel Street (No 5) soon after the pair had moved to West Cornwall from Richmond, Surrey, in the 1950s. Also a painter, Michael has a designer's eye, and took up picture framing for many of the discerning artists of the area, as well as managing the studios for John and himself.
Michael was also a member of the NSA, and actively supported its activities, serving on the Committee (1972-3) before the re-organisation of the Gallery by John HALKES and his wife Ella in 1974.
