Established in 1965 the gallery continues to be regarded as one of the country's most important and influential galleries.
Historically one of the most important spaces for 20th century artists in St Ives, the gallery supported the early careers of figures such as Peter Lanyon, Bryan Winter, Patrick Heron and Wilhelmina Barns-Graham and continues to show original paintings by both emerging and established Cornish artists alongside a varied range of contemporary crafts including glass, automata, wood, handmade jewellery, ceramic sculptures and metalwork.
Our reputation for quality and excellence is testament to the careful selection of some of the brightest and best artists and craftspeople.
