For December we made a festive window advent calendar. Thank you all for your kind comments on our window this month!


We loved this recent show by Anne-Marie Butlin, Ali Tomlin, Emma Dunbar and Sue Binns. Our exhibitions this year have been a joy to host and we would like to thank all of our artists for showing such amazing pieces of art with us.


Gallery artist Sarah Wimperis had a great year working on the first fully painted feature length animation Loving Vincent, starring many famous faces!


We welcomed a new artist to the gallery. Jamie Medlin has given us some amazing prints of his original paintings, which have been hugely popular. See more of Jamie’s prints on our website!

Late May, Falmouth Docks

Benjamin Warner’s exhibition First Light opened in August and proved to be our most successful exhibition of the year! In this collection, Warner returned to the Falmouth Docks, which have long been a source of inspiration.

Ben will be exhibiting with us early in the New Year so watch this space for news of his new work!


Our Falmouth School of Art Show celebrated the talent of Falmouths graduates including recent graduates Sarah Woods (pictured above) Brom Irwin and Megan Fatharly.

The exhibition featured eighteen painters and two ceramists that have graduated from Falmouth University, in its various stages, over the last six decades, including: the highly acclaimed Cornish artist Robert Jones who graduated from the Falmouth School of Art in 1964.


We took part in FRESH Art Fair 2017! This exciting new art fair took place at Cheltenham racecourse and featured numerous galleries from across the country coming together to show a great variety of art. This fair was a huge success for us and we would like to say a big thank you to everyone who organised this event and came to visit us whilst we were there. We can’t wait until next time!


Gallery artist Catherine Lucktaylor’s work was featured on the Great Pottery Throwdown on the BBC earlier this year as a perfect example of Raku pottery!


Back in the summer Andrew Tozer provided a painting demonstration in the gallery, it was a fabulous way for customers and the whole Beside The Wave team to see the process and methods behind Andrew’s paintings.


Miles Heseltine provided us with an amazing Diptych in his show ‘Hillside and Headlands’ back in May.
Miles is often found on monumental cliff tops with a colossal sheet of paper rolled out in front of him, stones used to anchor the corners to the rugged ground, working intuitively and quickly to capture a particular moment.
