The Wills Lane Gallery
“everyone's favourite seaside art destination”
Andrew Lambirth The Spectator Read more...
The Wills Lane Gallery, St. Ives was relaunched in 2007 to show fine and applied art by established and up and coming artists from around the country. Whether you want a small memento to take home after your holiday or advice about starting or adding to your collection – this is the place. In fact, it is the place described by the art critic Andrew Lambirth in The Spectator as “everyone’s favourite seaside art destination.” Collectors, holiday makers and art students are all welcome.
Since 2007 seven artworks have been sold to public collections: Crafts Council, Manchester Metropolitan University, Tyne and Wear Archives and Museums, Iron Bridge Gorge Museum Trust (through the Art Fund Collect scheme) and to corporate collections.
The gallery’s exhibition changes as works are sold and new works come in. From time to time there are solo exhibitions.
Click the medium to view the artists’ work: paintings, drawings, watercolours, prints, photographic work, sculpture, metalwork, ceramics, glass, weaving and jewellery.
