At the beginning of the Polperro Festival of Arts 2001 The Polperro Arts Foundation was officially opened by Chris Panowitz (the Millennium Lord Mayor). From that auspicious opening we have not looked back.Plan your visit to Polperro Arts Foundation and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Polperro online road trip planner.
A small energetic group of local Artists and Craftspeople had come together with one hope in mind, to promote and encourage the ‘Arts’ of Polperro and consequently after much discussion and research the Polperro Arts Foundation a non-profit making Chartered Trust was born.
With the acquisition of the Studio/Gallery on Quay Road we were finally able to fulfil our ambitions.
The Foundation ensures that all its members have an equal input into the day to day running of the Foundation. Our aim is to provide affordable studio and exhibition space and a vehicle to facilitate the numerous events and activities that encourage the Arts, especially with the children and schools of the village.
All our members are local Artists or Craftspeople, with a shared intention to support each other and Art within the community, maintaining Polperro’s long association with the Arts.

Amazing varied collection of work in a fantastic location. Always hosted by great local artists who are really happy to talk to you about their work and the area.
A nice little art gallery featuring local artists. Artwork is available to purchase at quite reasonable prices, but you aren't pressured to buy anything and can just pop in for a look around. Up a staircase so not wheelchair accessible.
