About Us

With almost 30 years' experience of dealing in fine art, Beside The Wave is Cornwall's leading gallery. The gallery opened in 1989, and is now one of Cornwall's best known and well established contemporary art venues with an international following of collectors. We expanded to London in 2015, opening a second gallery space in Primrose Hill, North London which in 2018 shut and our efforts have been re-directed down in Falmouth. 

Art works are predominantly rooted in the landscape; Cornwall's rich coast, countryside, towns and villages providing the inspiration for much of the work that we show. In addition, a number of our artists focus on paintings of place in a wider sense, including interiors and still lifes.

We have over 750 art works to choose from as well as a fine collection of artist made ceramics and jewellery.   With prices between £100 - £10,000, we have something to suit all occasions.

We also host a lively and exciting schedule of exhibitions throughout the year and splendid evening viewing events to which all are welcome.

We are able to offer interest free finance under the Own Art scheme reducing the cost of purchase to affordable monthly payments,

Contemporary impressionists, such as Andrew Tozer, Amanda Hoskin, Benjamin Warner and Sarah Wimperis mix with colourists such as Richard Tuff, Emma Dunbar, Alasdair Lindsay and Miles Oxenford, and the abstract expressionist work of Miles Heseltine. Paul Lewin and Chris Rigby are exceptional painters of coast and cliffs and Andrew Giddens' wave paintings are a spiritual homage to the natural world.

With over seventy artists represented, the gallery offers a wide range of exceptional work to those wishing to start or extend their collections.

The Gallery was acquired in 2007 by Ingrid Heseltine.
