The Exchange is a major contemporary art space that opened in 2007 in conjunction with renovations to Newlyn Art Gallery. The gallery occupies a former telephone exchange and has a striking glass facade that runs the entire length of the building. Together the galleries present contemporary work in all media by regional, national and international artists, with a programme of events, activities and education. Formerly the town’s telephone exchange, the huge space retains the original industrial feel of the building and features a large t-shaped gallery and a striking glass facade that runs the entire length of the building.

Highlights for the year include Simple Truths, a community-focussed exhibition featuring works selected by dads from the WILD Young Parents Project, as well as the annual gallery volunteers’ exhibition. Full details on the gallery website:

The galleries will open for 2022 on 19th February, opening Tue-Sat 10:00 – 17:00 over the winter, and daily in summer.

£4.50 (including Gift Aid donation) or £4.00 for a seven-day pass to both venues. Free entry for Patrons, Supporters, & U18s
