Yew Tree Gallery


Join us for mulled wine on Saturday & Sunday afternoons
10th & 11th December 2016

Well-loved artists keep the gallery going through the winter months!

Painters JANET LYNCH and ANDREW WADDINGTON (with JENNY RYRIE up to 15th December);  potters DAVID GARLAND, CHRIS BARNES, NIGEL LAMBERT, JILL FANSHAWE KATO, JUDITH ROWE and the ceramic sculptor JOHN MALTBYARDYN GRIFFIN - imaginative papier maché pieces; DIANE JORDAN - plant-dyed woollen cushions & herby-scented sleep pillows ~ as well as ever-popular jewellers GUY ROYLE, GINA COWEN, RITA SERES and HELYNE JENNINGS are displayed throughout both gallery rooms.

All in all, well worth a trip out along the coast road, with the additional lure of a hot cuppa in the Potting Shed and tasty home-made biscuits!

Best to ring (01736 786425) or email gilly@yewtreegallery.com to check
opening times as various other commitments may lure me away for the odd hour or so in the run up to Christmas!

We are happy to say that our St Ives cottage MORWENNOL is now beautifully complete and ready to be enjoyed by any of you who fancy a week or so in that special seaside town. You can view several shots of the interior and garden, and a full description on the booking site. Meanwhile - here is a taster! Click here for more information.


YEW TREE GALLERY, on the West coast of Cornwall, is set among fields and gardens facing the broad Atlantic against a backdrop of the ancient moors of Penwith. The village of Morvah lies about a mile away, with the erstwhile mining community of Pendeen and Botallack to the west.

The gallery buildings nestle into the landscape at Keigwin, a farming hamlet on the B3306 coast road between St Ives and St Just. Exhibitions are held from Easter to the end of October, curated by Gilly Wyatt Smith who previously ran Yew Tree Gallery in Derbyshire then Gloucestershire for 30 years.

In between exhibitions the gallery space is also offered as a workshop venue for fully residential courses or retreats. Brochures with tariff available by post to those interested in organizing workshops here.

Many of the exhibitions follow a theme that links us to our environment – both particular to this place but also embracing the wider realm of the planet.

Nationally respected artists living in West Cornwall, such as BREON O’CASEY and ROSE HILTON, exhibit in solo shows here, as well as in themed shows. All exhibitors are selected for the very individual quality of their work, whether it be paintings, sculpture, ceramics, glass, wood, textiles or jewellery. Many, but not all, the artists work in Cornwall. Overall, the gallery’s aim is to show work of the highest calibre which expresses the true soul of the artist.

Visitors to the gallery are invited to wander through the sculpture gardens and organic potager with its wildlife pond, (not missing the ducks and their comical antics), and enjoy the views as well as the works of art and plants, herbs and saladings, which are also for sale when crops are abundant.
