Newlyn Art Gallery, along with The Exchange, its sister gallery in Penzance, offers an internationally recognised contemporary art programme, with a supporting programme of events.
For more than 120 years, Newlyn Art Gallery has been bringing the best in contemporary art to audiences in the south west. The programme reflects and resonates with the gallery’s unique location and history, as well providing projects for artist experimentation and development.
The gallery is one of just three national partners appointed to host the Arts Council Collection of contemporary artworks for three years, April 2019 – March 2022, and deliver an ambitious programme of exhibitions in its two venues, and off-site locations.
As well as the main exhibition spaces, there is a small space dedicated to showing works for sale by regional artists, a coffee shop and gift shop.
Dogs are welcome in the buildings, including the café, but may not be allowed into the main exhibition spaces during certain exhibitions.
