CIRCLE is a Fine Art Gallery located in North Cornwall.

The gallery represents a diverse group of artists living in the UK and Europe who have a strong personal style. We are committed to showing contemporary art, which above all is visually acute, thoughtful and beautiful.

Lucy Thorman and John O’Carroll run the gallery with a professional but relaxed vibe, in keeping with west coast gallery convention. John O’Carroll is a visual artist with an onsite studio.

The gallery is a cool and minimal space which is continually evolving, showing emerging and well known artists, alternating group and solo exhibitions, focusing on fresh and innovative art.

Circle Opening leaflet


30 NOV – 28 DEC

CIRCLE are showing an exiting group of ceramic artists from Britain and Europe as part of their winter fine crafts initiative. Making vessels from clay has been part of our human journey for thousands of years.

Nicholas Arroyave-Portela, Paul Jackson, Nicholas Lees, Deborah Mitchell, Peter Hayes, Jenny Beavan, Regina Heinz and Chris Prindl are exhibiting their works in CLAY this autumn. The show, curated by John O’Carroll and Lucy Thorman will allow viewers to explore the ceramicists very different styles and techniques. The relationship between the functional, the non-functional and the valuable is one aspect that emerges in the work of the artists featured in this exhibition.

All works will also be available to view online and the exhibition will be on show until 28th December 2018.
