OUR RECOMMENDATIONS: NEWLYN & PENZANCE

The first of an occasional series where our team give their recommendations for other galleries to visit, places to go, and things to do in Penzance and Newlyn.

Deputy Director and Programme Curator Blair Todd starts with his pick of other galleries in Penzance and Newlyn.

HWEG
Hweg, like Dust, is small gallery space run from the artist’s home – in both cases previous shops in Penzance. Hweg presents a changing programme of solo shows by national artists.
Open Tue, Fri, & Sat 10:00 – 16:00
34 Causewayhead, Penzance TR18 2SP
(at the very top of Causewayhead on the left hand side – opposite Barton Books.)

DUST
Dust is a project space, that looks like a museum and operates as a shop, presenting artworks, publications and conversations relating to death and grief.
Open Sat, 12:00 – 16:00
4-5 Albert Buildings, Penzance TR18 2DB
(from the top of Causewayhead, turn right and Dust is halfway down the hill on the right.)
