There are no permanent displays held at the Tate St Ives, but special exhibitions are held which change three times a year. The Gallery closes in order to change the exhibitions however the Cafe, Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden remain open. Please visit the website below to see what exhibitions are currently showing at the Tate St Ives.

Included in your Tate visit is access to Barbara Hepworth's Sculpture Garden and Museum which is a unique, fascinating and unusual experience. She was one of Britain's most important 20th century artists. She first moved to Cornwall in 1939 and worked in Trewyn studios from 1949 - 1975. It was her wish that her home and studio were established as a museum of her work. Initially much of her first carvings were of wood and stone but during the 1950's she started to use bronze which allowed her to create works on a larger scale. The bronzes that you see in her garden today are exactly where she placed them.

You can also experience St Ives from Ben Nicholson's perspective. Ben - an artist in his own right - was married to Barbara Hepworth. His tour takes you through St Ives connecting places and spaces in the town with his work and his life. You can either hire an iPod Touch from the gallery or download the tour free of charge to your own iPod Touch or iPhone before visiting.

There is plenty of accessible parking to the gallery, which is also family friendly. Enjoy the cafe on site which has fabulous views of the old town.
