The Padstow Studio is an artist-run space, opened in 2006 by the landscape painter Sarah Adams, whose studio occupies the second floor of the building. The gallery below exhibits Sarah’s own work and that of a circle of friends, artists who she has studied with, shown with or shared studio space with over the years.
The gallery exhibits a constantly changing selection of contemporary paintings, drawings, ceramics and works in bronze, and aims to give visitors the opportunity to engage with and follow the development of individuals who interest them.
Not everyone the gallery shows is based in Cornwall, and most of the group are also represented by well-established galleries elsewhere. For further information about individual artists, please click on their names, and follow the links to their own websites.
We accept most major credit and debit cards, cheques and BACS transfers.
Although the gallery is not part of a formal hire purchase scheme, we are always happy to discuss purchase by installments, should that be required. All works are safely stored at the gallery until the balance is paid.
Small and medium size works can generally be carried away at time of purchase. We are also happy to pack and send small pieces by Royal Mail Special Delivery at no extra charge.
Large and medium works can be delivered a specialist art carrier. We cover the cost of most deliveries within the UK mainland if the purchase price is over £1,000 (excluding some parts of Scotland).
