2016 Exhibitions

With an international reputation amongst discerning art and craft collectors for our painting, sculpture and quality studio ceramics, the New Craftsman is regarded as one of the most important spaces for contemporary artists in St Ives.

The gallery is proud to exhibit original work by emerging Cornish artists and leading British designer–makers. Our bright and spacious two floored gallery houses an ever-changing mix of contemporary painting and craft across the disciplines, alongside a year-round programme of exhibitions by established and up and coming painters and craftspeople.

We also hold the remaining studio works of celebrated painter John Miller, and continue to be the St Ives town centre stockists for the Leach Pottery’s contemporary tableware range.

We have a wonderful programme of exhibitions throughout this year, beginning on 25th March with our Easter show by St Ives painter Emma Jeffryes, ceramicist and Jerwood Makers prize winner Adam Buick and ceramic artist Rowena Brown. Exhibiting artists for 2016 also include Akiko Hirai, Neil Davies, Matthew Chambers, Chris Keenan, Matthew Lanyon and many others.
