CIRCLE is a recognised North Cornish Art Gallery run by Lucy Thorman and John O’Carroll.


The gallery is a cool and elegant space on two floors showcasing emerging and well known artists. Circle’s distinct style is shaped by the artists and artisans who’s creativity stems from their living landscape, be it the coast or the countryside. 


We are committed to showing paintings, prints, sculpture and fine crafts which are imbued with the integrity of the maker. Our current focus is on the ‘new rural’ - a fresh take on the 1930’s Arts and Crafts movement. While we feel it is important to represent Cornish ‘localness’ we also believe in one world and currently show work by contemporary artists from Wales, Europe and Australasia, Egypt, and the USA. Circle supports artists who literally take a hand in emphasising the natural beauty of our planet through their visual art practice.


"Our online and gallery presence is continually updated, with solo, duo and mixed shows which we hope will uplift and give pleasure" - Lucy Thorman
