Support Us

Since 1895 Newlyn Art Gallery & The Exchange has been dedicated to supporting artists. Today, this means championing new and emerging regional artists, presenting an ambitious exhibition programme and offering a welcoming invitation to our audience, both visiting and resident, to participate. We are committed to researching and supporting new work and underpinning the creative development of artists. A year-round learning programme takes inspiration from the exhibitions and is particularly focussed on creating opportunities for everybody to engage with exhibition programming. Newlyn Art Gallery & The Exchange is a resource for all the community, and we aim to offer a space and platform for social exchange.

We are an educational arts charity, an Arts Council England National Portfolio organisation and a Cornwall Council Strategic Arts Client. We receive 50% of our funding from these sources and we work to generate the remainder from our shop, café and event income alongside support from trusts and foundations, individuals – including patrons and benefactors – exhibition sponsorship and donations.

Your support helps us to connect communities, grow our all-important creative sector, and enrich lives through inspiring learning.
