Our current exhibition is 'WALLWORK & WALLWORK Earth & Stone', the first exhibition in Cornwall of paintings and ceramics by father and daughter Alan and Amanda Wallwork. A highly regarded and avidly collected ceramicist, Alan Wallwork has produced an extensive range of sculptural forms since the late 1950s, working mostly in stoneware and porcelain. The exhibition focuses on small to medium size works, particulary his crescent forms'. Amanda Wallwork is a regular exhibitor with the gallery, her paintings are concerned with archaeology, geology and a continuing enquiry into landscape. Much of her work relates to the ancient bronze age settlements and trackways of West Cornwall.

Barns-Graham, Anthony Benjamin, Sven Berlin, Denis Bowen, Bob Crossley, Maurice Cockrill, Patrick Hayman, Roger Hilton, Terry Frost, Alexander Mackenzie, Ben Nicholson, Alan Reynolds, Michael Snow, Maurice Sumray, Keith Vaughan, John Wells and Bryan Wynter.

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.
