Welcome to Cornwall Art Fair

Inspired by the light and landscape, Cornwall has been an integral part in the emergence of British modern art. With a history ranging from ancient stone figures of unknown origin to the stomping grounds of artistic giants. From Alfred Wallis to Ben Nicholson, Barbara Hepworth, Peter Layton and Patrick Heron, Cornish artists boast an enormous wealth of talent, creativity, and artistic vision. In connection to its geography and past, a new of breed of local artists will be displaying their works in the inaugural year of the Cornwall Art Fair this April. Join us in celebrating Cornwall’s inherent connection to its land, its people, and its traditions through this convergence of talent manifested in art and craft.

Cornish Art features an evolution of one of the premier venues for emerging local artists. Since the early 19th century, sojourning artists and homegrown talent have come to be known as international players. Once a near accessible seafaring outpost, Cornwall has nurtured and grown a rich artistic heritage, featuring raw creations with many layers of depth and meaning.

About Cornwall Art Fair

The idea for the Cornwall Art fair was born out of a realisation that there is a disparity between the amount of quality artists based in Cornwall and the opportunities for them to showcase their work in a central place and meet potential buyers and network together.

This art exhibition aims to promote the vast talent of established and emerging Cornish artisans by providing an avenue for their creations. Empowering pieces such as paintings and jewellery encourages a dialogue of culture and inspiration between local artists and visitors alike. Be a part of a celebration of creativity, passion, and dedication brought about by highly skilled artists proudly representing Cornwall.

The Cornwall Art Fair enables Cornish artists across a variety of media to build a relationship with buyers, potential buyers, shops and galleries.

Discover artwork to suit all budgets and tastes. Whether you are a first-time buyer looking to start your collection or a seasoned collector searching for a new direction, the fair presents a vast range of artists working in a range of styles with artworks starting at £50.

Thank you to all artists, visitors and friends that have supported the fair so far. I look forward to welcoming you to our first.
