COMMUNITY STAIRCASE GALLERY
Falmouth Art Gallery has a vibrant exhibition programme. We change exhibitions regularly and hang works from our permanent collection alongside major museum loans, work from local artists, community groups, school children and students.
Our art collection is large and eclectic for a small museum. The works are rotated regularly in our entrance and main galleries and we work to variety of themes.
The staircase gallery is used for community displays. Groups such as Falcare, Age Concern, local schools and Falmouth University visit on a regular basis and create art in response to current exhibitions.
Our limelight wall within the entrance gallery, is open to all aspiring and professional artists. To achieve a dynamic turnaround the space is changed weekly.
