Rather English - Visit Newlyn Art Gallery

Opened in 1895 in Newlyn near Penzance, Newlyn Art Gallery was originally a place to exhibit the art of the Newlyn School of artists, a group of Victorian artists who had established themselves in the small fishing village to paint in plein air and observe the light and scenery of West Cornwall.

Today, the gallery is still going strong, and following redevelopments in 2007 it has been extended with the inevitable addition of an attractive first floor cafe with panoramic sea views.

From mid November to late January, Tired of London, Tired of Life is becoming RatherEnglish.com and featuring interesting things to do in England

  1. Do you like the new extensions?

    I loved Newlyn because the landscapes and townscapes were so pretty and because the weather was lovelier for artists and outdoor workers.

    Then, decades later, Troika pots also came from Newlyn. The old salting house in Fragden Place must have been a hopping and jumping place.

    Thanks for the link
