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, with 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. Belgrave St Ives works with a number of artists, artists’ estates, collectors and galleries, to produce a programme of changing one-person and themed exhibitions.

For 22 years Belgrave St Ives was located in the heart of historic and picturesque St Ives, and is now operating online to focus on its core activities and to work more closely with individual clients and artists.

Opened in 1998 as sister gallery to Belgrave Gallery (est. London 1974), the gallery became independent in 2010. Belgrave St Ives aims to present exhibitions in an informative and friendly manner and the team are always happy to discuss all aspects of the art we deal in.

Gallery team: Michael Gaca (Director), Richard Blackborow and Dominica Williamson.
