Newlyn Art Gallery & The Exchange

Newlyn Art Gallery & The Exchange

With two venues we are able to offer a wide and varied programme, showcasing the very best of national and international contemporary art, as well as work by the most exciting artists currently practising in the region.


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 for more than 120 years.


The Exchange is a major contemporary art space in the centre of Penzance that enables audiences to see work on a scale never before accessible in the region.
