Gallery

West Cornwall is well-known as a magnet for artists and both nearby Newlyn and St. Ives have long-standing reputations as centres for world-class art. The Hotel Penzance and The Bay Restaurant have a permanent exhibition of work from local outstanding artists. The artist on display is changed each month, with prints available from all our guest artists for sale from reception.


Doodie Grubb 12.07.14 – 09.08.2014

Doodie’s Doodles are the work of Newquay artist Doodie Grubb.   The Doodles are quirky, coloured pencil drawings of landscapes and fantasy figures.

John Tremaine 06.09.14 – 04.10.14

I often use a method called pointillism; this is where thousands of tiny dots of ink are applied in varying density to create depth and realism. My drawings evolve slowly, sittings are normally between two and four hours. The popular otter picture took 88 hours to complete, the brown trout within it took more than two hours

Recent paintings have been developed from her sculptural forms, which evolve from the clay, and which represent a sense of being, from the inside. www.jeanfouldsart.co.uk
