Newlyn Art Gallery

St Ives is a beautiful seaside town with the sea and sky combining to produce a wonderful aspect of light which draws artists and craftspeople to explore their creativity to the full. There are a plethora of art galleries, museums, craft and workshops within the town and we have recommended some of our favourite places.

Newlyn Art Gallery

and Exchange

Newlyn Art Gallery is a contemporary art gallery located in Newlyn, Cornwall, UK. Opened in 1895, designed by James Hicks of Redruth and financed by John Passmore Edwards the gallery was conceived as a home and exhibition venue for the Newlyn School of Art the works of which are now largely located at Penlee House Gallery and Museum in nearby Penzance.

Following an architectural design competition managed by RIBA Competitions, the gallery was redeveloped and a second venue The Exchange in Penzance, was opened in 2007. With two venues it offers a wide and varied programme across two sites. The focus at Newlyn Art Gallery is on painting and drawing. Artists working in other media continue to be a part of the programme on occasions, but two-dimensional work is the clear focus. Recent shows have included major retrospectives by Roger Hilton and Breon O’Casey. As a dog-friendly venue, dogs on leads are allowed to visit the gallery.
