Mixed bag of art, generally enjoyable

Very small amount of art collection is on show at one time. the actual art display space is quite limited (there is a bit of an 'is that it ?' feeling when you have been around). However the quality of the art is good, and interactive exhibits such as the balloons in 'half the air in a given space' in 2011, add to the experience. Best coupled with a visit to the Barabara Hepworth collection. Don't expect to spend more than about an hour here. Unlike the Tate in London there is an entry charge, so look out for money off vouchers locally before you visit.

A superb introduction to 20th century Cornish art - Don't miss the Barbara Hepworth gallery

This is the perfect place to see and learn more about contemporary Cornish art. The collection boasts a number of Alfred Wallis's works, and those of other influential artists right up to the present day. Your ticket also allows you in to the Barbara Hepworth gallery, a short walk through the narrow streets of St Ives. The gallery is on the site of her workshop, which looks exactly as though she has popped out to the shops for a few minutes, and includes a number of her iconic works in the beautiful garden overlooking the church and the town. Not to be missed.

With a very limited permanent collection, this outpost of the Tate hosts exhibitions of modern art, sometimes with a Cornish theme. The coffee shop is excellent and has a wonderful view
