Newlyn Art Gallery & The Exchange

<img src="spacer.gif" width="450" height="1" alt="">

We offer a wide and varied programme across our two sites, showcasing the very best of national and international contemporary art, as well as work by some of the best artists currently working in the region.
Our exhibitions are supported by a full programme of events.
At Newlyn Art Gallery we recently completed a project to enhance the outdoor spaces including secluded gardens, an outdoor cafe area and a flexible space where workshops and events can take place during the summer months.
The Exchange features a large T-shaped gallery which is also used as a project space, for film screenings, live performances and community events.
Both venues have a café serving snacks and light lunches, as well as a well-stocked shop selling books, cards, jewellery and gifts.
Well behaved dogs on leads are welcome.
