JOHN MILNE Sculpture of the 60s & 70s: A collection of 13 sculptures by the highly regarded St Ives sculptor, John Milne. After briefly studying at the Académie de la Grande Chaumière in Paris and making the first of what would become regular visits to Greece, Milne moved to St Ives. He became the pupil of, and later assistant to, Barbara Hepworth with whom he established a close friendship. Milne's early work was directly carved in stone, but from 1966 he started experimenting with metals and learned cold casting methods for bronze and aluminium.

The Belgrave Gallery (London) joined the fair at its inception in 1988 (variously named but in most recent years the 20/21 British Art Fair). Belgrave St Ives is delighted to take part in the 2018 re-launch under new management and at this fabulous new location. Invitations will be sent to gallery clients and interested parties - we hope to see you there.

Belgrave St Ives specialises in Modern British and Contemporary Art. There is an emphasis on work by artists associated with Cornwall from the 1930s to the present time. The gallery is the only private art gallery in Cornwall showing regular exhibitions of work by major artists associated with the St Ives Modern Period as well as exhibitions of works by other select Modern British and Contemporary Artists. The gallery works with a number of artists, artists’ estates, collectors and other galleries, to produce an annual programme of changing monthly one-person and themed exhibitions usually accompanied by published material.
Located in the heart of historic and picturesque St Ives, the gallery is situated very close to the Barbara Hepworth Museum. Opened in 1998 as sister gallery to Belgrave Gallery (est. London 1974), the St Ives gallery became independent in 2010. The gallery aims to present exhibitions in an informative and friendly manner and the staff are always happy to discuss all aspects of art on display. In addition to gallery exhibitions, Belgrave St Ives has an active online presence (website, blog, Facebook) and holds a large inventory of art not on show that can easily be arranged for viewing by interested visitors.
