About Newlyn Art Gallery
Newlyn Art Gallery exists because of a long history of contemporary art making in the far west of Cornwall and has celebrated contemporary art and supported the artists that produce it for 120 years. In 2007 the gallery reopened after a period of renovation with the addition of a new pavilion. At this time the gallery also launched its new space The Exchange in the centre of Penzance, which has enabled the organisation to take on larger, more ambitious projects across its two sites. Together the galleries continue to present contemporary work in all media by regional, national and international artists, with a programme of events, activities and education.
The Gallery shop sells ceramics, jewellery, cards and art books, and the Studio Cafe serves tea, coffee and cakes during the summer. In the winter the space is used to display ceramics and crafts. We recently completed a project to enhance its outdoor spaces including secluded gardens with pebble seating. The Picture Room is an additional gallery space presenting selling exhibitions by leading regional artists. For details of exhibitions and events visit the website.
