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.

COASTLINES is Circle Contemporary’s first fine art photography exhibition. Joni Sternbach and Caroline Vera Marrack are contemporary artists who favour analogue photography. In a world of digital media their photographs are taken with the constraints of vintage film cameras – resulting in poetically arresting images.
