For almost 120 years, Newlyn Art Gallery has been bringing the best in contemporary art to audiences in the South West. In 2007, the gallery was redeveloped and opened a second venue, The Exchange, in Penzance. It offers a wide and varied programme across two sites, showcasing the best of national and international contemporary art, as well as work by some of the best artists currently working in the region.
Newlyn has played an important role in supporting the development of twentieth century painting in Britain, and in acknowledgement of that history, its current programme explores how contemporary artists, use painting and drawing to express their ideas.
The Exchange is also used as a project space in which artists and curators can test new ideas. Recent projects include The Penzance Convention in May 2012 and Shezad Dawood's astounding exhibition running summer 2012. A major contemporary art space, The Exchange enables audiences to see work on a scale never before accessible in the region.
The Exchange address is Princes Street, Penzance, TR18 2NL.
