Falmouth Art Gallery

Falmouth Art Gallery

Falmouth Art Gallery is family friendly and free, and one of the leading art galleries in the South West: the town's art collection features works by major artists including Edward Burne-Jones, Charles Napier Hemy, Alfred Munnings and Henry Scott Tuke. We also house an impressive collection of automata and childrens' book illustrations.

We have gained nationwide recognition for our innovative family and community workshops and we particularly welcome visits from special needs groups. Further to this there are family workshops one Saturday a month that take inspiration from the surrounding exhibitions.

    This work is one of six oil paintings by Martina Thomas in the collection at Falmouth Art Gallery, given by her husband, the artist and ceramicist Eric James Mellon. Martina Thomas was a regular summer visitor to West Cornwall.

  • The Lady of Shalott - from the poem by Tennyson by John William Waterhouse RA (1849-1917):

    This study is one of our most famous paintings. During his lifetime Waterhouse was acclaimed as one of England's finest artists, and his paintings of the Lady of Shalott remain archetypal Victorian images.
