Newlyn Art Gallery & The Exchange has been supporting contemporary artists since 1895. Today this means championing emerging regional artists, showing an ambitious exhibition programme and inviting our local and visiting audiences to be inspired and create.

Located in West Cornwall, our communities are remote and sometimes isolated rural and island communities. We believe that art can inspire and drive change, and this principle has informed a social change agenda over the last five years.

We have loved working with community curators from groups including the Social Prescribing Network, Black Voices Cornwall, Young LGBTQIA+ people, WILD Young Dads, and several schools to reinterpret works from national and regional collections. Their energy and insight has changed the way we programme our exhibitions.

A three-year programme, Think Talk Make Art, in nine isolated primary schools had us working hand-in-hand with teachers to re-establish art and creative thinking at the vital centre of the curriculum.

Long-term creative health programmes such as Tea, Cake & Art are demonstrating physical and emotional wellbeing benefits at the heart of our programme.

Please make a donation to help us grow these connections. All donations, large or small, will contribute to ensuring our communities can experience art that can inspire and change things for the better.

Newlyn Art Gallery & The Exchange is an educational arts charity, an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation, and a Cornwall Council Arts Revenue Client. We receive 50% of our funding from these sources and raise the remainder from admission, our shops and cafés, and from fundraising.
