OUR GALLERIES ARE NOW CLOSED Following updated advice from the Government, both our venues are closed until further notice as a temporary measure. We are disappointed not to be able to stay open but the health and wellbeing of our team, and our visitors, is our priority. We are working on plans to deliver alternative programmes for as wide an audience as possible during this temporary period of closure, through our website, our social media channels and non-digital means.Join our mailing list to find out more at Thank you for your understanding, and we hope to welcome you to the galleries again very soon. In line with Government advice, the team will be mostly working from home, and contactable via email. A list of the staff together with their emails addresses can be found on our website should you need to get in touch. 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.
