This year’s programme of exhibitions has so far included painters Emma Jeffryes, Neil Davies, Lucie Bray and Lieke Ritman, Jerwood Makers prize winner Adam Buick and ceramicists Akiko Hirai, Chris Keenan and Rowena Brown amongst others. This autumn we’re bringing together the work of two of Cornwall’s most recognizable artists - painter Shirley Foote and ceramicist Stephanie Cunningham - each known for their highly distinctive stylization of the figurative.
This Christmas we present USEFUL | BEAUTIFUL, an exhibition of exquisite contemporary British art and craft, with a collection of multidisciplinary works which emphasise the skill of the maker and the natural beauty of materials.

Throughout his career John Miller was closely identified with the New Craftsman gallery. His lifetime partner Michael Truscott kindly allowed this association to continue following John's death in 2002, and we are therefore proud to exhibit remaining works from John’s Cornwall studio.
