Newlyn Art Gallery
© 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 more than 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. Newlyn Art Gallery & The Exchange offers an internationally recognised contemporary art programme across its two sites, presenting work in all media by regional, national and international artists, with a supporting programme of events.
