Welcome to The Byre – a contemporary craft and art gallery in Cornwall

The Byre gallery on the Rame peninsula in south-east Cornwall exhibits stunning works of design-led craft and contemporary fine art by leading and emerging makers and artists from throughout the UK.

The Byre is open three times a year with exhibitions held in spring, summer and at Christmas, and is a must-visit destination for all lovers of fine art as well as contemporary craft in ceramics, glass, jewellery, metals and textiles.  The gallery is easily reached from Devon, Plymouth and Cornwall and is surrounded by beautiful coastal countryside.

An exhibition at the Byre shows art and craft in a recognisable – but stylised – domestic context: each exhibition is specially curated to give a suggestion of how art and craft can look in the home rather than shown in a more traditional gallery setting.

Artists and designer makers who have recently taken part in exhibitions at the Byre include: Lucy Burley, Corrinne Eira Evans, Tracey Falvey, Kerry Harding, Jill Hudson, Remon Jephcott, Catriona Mackenzie, Rebecca Proctor, Siobhan Purdy, Loraine Rutt, Lucy Spink, Ruth Shelley, and Kate Welton.
