The Penwith Galleries studio complex was acquired in 1960. Formerly an old pilchard packing factory and sail lofts, the site has been developed into a remarkable complex of buildings, with eleven artists’ studios. It was here that Peter Lanyon, Terry Frost and Bill Redgrave ran ‘Summer Schools’ in drawing and painting. Our current studio holders include painters, print-makers, sculptors and potters.
