Now that restrictions to movement in the current situation have eased a little, we are welcoming carefully scheduled visits to GREEN & FRUITFUL - WET & WILD from Wednesdays to Saturdays, Best to ring first, if possible, to avoid any queuing (01736 786425) or contact Gilly if you would like to make an appointment. The exhibition continues to 20th July, looking forward to seeing you!
Meanwhile, new exhibits are frequently added to the website, and all are available for purchase, which we can send by post or courier. Do take a look at the YouTube video of a wander through the whole exhibition, so if you are unable to visit, you may still feel you have dropped in for a quick look round!

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.
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 Cornwall and beyond are selected for solo and themed exhibitions. Throughout the gallery’s history, emphasis has been on showing work of the highest calibre in a variety of disciplines – painting, sculpture, ceramics, glass, textiles, wood or jewellery.
Visitors to the gallery are invited to wander through the sculpture gardens and organic potager with its wildlife pond, enjoy the views as well as the works of art and perhaps linger for a coffee or tea and freshly baked biscuit at our converted ‘Potting Shed’ kitchen. Plants, herbs and saladings are for sale too (when crops are abundant) and our free-range hens lay delicious large eggs!
