Belgrave St Ives - Modern & Contemporary Art



12th December 2015 to 6th January 2016

Now showing: our collaborative exhibition with the St Ives Society of Artists, featuring works by students and teachers of the Camberwell College of Arts and Crafts between 1945-1985, is one of the highlights of this year's exhibition schedule. The exhibition is showing in both galleries at Belgrave St Ives, and also at the St Ives Society of Artists, who are based in the Mariners Church, Norway Square, St Ives.

Please contact the gallery for a catalogue or for further information.


Our next exhibition will be PRINTS & DRAWINGS, an exhibition of accessibly priced works by Contemporary, St Ives Modern and Modern British artists. The show includes around 100 works and offers the opportunity to purchase affordable works by a wide range of well known artists. The exhibition opens in the gallery on 12 December, but works are available to purchase now. A catalogue of works will be available at the beginning of December.


The Gallery Blog is a rich resource of images and background information covering the gallery's ongoing exhibition programme, where you will find installation images, biographical detail and more about current and previous shows. Follow other gallery news on Twitter and Facebook.

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.
