We were very much looking forward to opening the doors to our current show GREEN & FRUITFUL - WET & WILD on Sunday 14th April. Sadly, due to the current situation, we will be closed for visits to the gallery.
In the interim you are able to view many of the works here on the website. All available to purchase now, we are more than happy to send out via courier/post. We will be adding new work as it is photographed along with video tours of the exhibition.
We will review the situation regularly, keeping you all up to date via social media, by email and here on the website.
So why not grab a cup/glass of your favourite beverage and join us for:

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!
