On B3306 coast road between St. Ives and St. Just, on the opposite coast from Penzance.


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. 

In between exhibitions the gallery space is also offered as a workshop venue for fully residential courses or retreats. Brochures with tariff available by post to those interested in organizing workshops here.

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 West Cornwall, such as BREON O'CASEY and ROSE HILTON, exhibit in solo shows here, as well as in themed shows. All exhibitors are selected for the very individual quality of their work, whether it be paintings, sculpture, ceramics, glass, wood, textiles or jewellery. Many, but not all, the artists work in Cornwall. Overall, the gallery's aim is to show work of the highest calibre which expresses the true soul of the artist.

Visitors to the gallery are invited to wander through the sculpture gardens and organic potager with its wildlife pond, (not missing the ducks and their comical antics), and enjoy the views as well as the works of art and plants, herbs and saladings, which are also for sale when crops are abundant.
