Newlyn Art Gallery and The Exchange


Contemporary art gallery with two sites in Penzance, exhibiting a large, eclectic collection of work by local artists.

TEL:01736 363715
New Rd, Penzance, Cornwall TR18 5PZ

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. 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.

There is a shop selling ceramics, jewellery, cards and art books and the Studio Cafe serves cakes, pastries and savoury snacks. The gallery recently completed a project to enhance its outdoor spaces including secluded gardens with pebble seating.

Well behaved dogs are welcome, but may not be allowed in the exhibition spaces during certain times. For details of exhibitions and events visit the website.

The Exchange is a major contemporary art space in the centre of Penzance that opened in 2007 in conjunction with renovations to Newlyn Art Gallery. Together the galleries present contemporary work in all media by regional, national and international artists, with a programme of events, activities and education.

Formerly the town’s telephone exchange, the huge space retains the original industrial feel of the building and features a large t-shaped gallery and a striking glass facade that runs the entire length of the building. It is well suited to installation and social participation projects and its international reputation allows it to bring some of the best art being produced around the globe to Cornwall.

The Exchange is located off historic Chapel Street, within easy walking distance of the bus and train stations. There is a well-stocked book and gift shop plus a café serving snacks and light lunches. Well behaved dogs are welcome, but may not be allowed in the exhibition spaces during certain times.
