Inside the gallery

Established in 1989, Beside The Wave is one of Cornwall’s most well known and recognised contemporary art galleries with an international following of collectors.

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.

All artwork is available to purchase in the gallery as well as online. If you are planning a visit to the gallery and would like to view works in particular – please do get in touch ahead of time.
