The John Dyer Gallery Story

The John Dyer Gallery is run by the husband and wife team of artists John Dyer and Joanne Short. Of all the art galleries in Falmouth, we have the widest and very best selection of Cornish art inspired by the landscape and Cornwall's rich coast. The gallery is predominantly rooted in our online gallery with clients encouraged to shop and buy art works online from our many art galleries and collections of prints.

We offer superb value art work, original paintings, ceramics, artist-designed gifts and a wide variety of art prints on museum-quality watercolour paper by John Dyer, Ted Dyer and Joanne Short - three of Cornwall's most established and acclaimed contemporary artists. We also have a wide range of art cards you can shop for that you will find on sale across Cornwall in most major venues and boutique shops.

Clients can also book private appointments with the artists to view original paintings at our spacious Edwardian property in Falmouth, Cornwall, or even request to view an original painting at another location, holiday home or private address local to Falmouth.

Register your email to be invited to attend our spectacular public exhibition openings and special collection events or email us your request to join our postal list with your address.

The John Dyer Gallery in Falmouth is a natural progression from our previous Falmouth high street gallery that we founded in 1989 and as artists and gallery owners we have over 30 years of exhibition, gallery and artist experience making us the experts in Cornwall art.

The John Dyer Gallery has a leading and unique set of exhibitions and community projects which are run in partnership with some of the UK's most prestigious organisations. 

The gallery was established in 2005 and has formed working relationships with the Eden Project, The National Trust, St Michael's Mount, Falmouth Art Gallery (who have a wonderful collection of art that includes paintings by Ted Dyer, John Dyer, Joanne Short, Henry Scott Tuke and Lee Miller), The National Maritime Museum Cornwall, Kids in Museums, The Arts Council, the Eden Project, Born Free Foundation, Earth Day and many environmental organisations around the world.

The gallery offers a special opportunity to shop and spend time with the artists viewing paintings in a friendly & comfortable environment without interruptions. Please note that our prints and art gifts are exclusively available to shop for in our online galleries.

"The gallery bridges the gap between collector and artist and is one of the UK's most exclusive galleries. Our last public exhibition held in conjunction with the acclaimed Eden Project & Survival International was a great success with over 500 people attending."

Cornish seascape paintings and prints are some of the most beautiful and sought-after art in the world. There is something about the rugged coastline and rolling seas that inspires artists to capture its beauty on canvas. In this blog post, we will take a walk with artist Joanne Short around the stunning South West Cornish Footpath from Gunwalloe to the Lizard. We will explore the different coastal scenes that she encountered on her journey, and learn more about her inspiration for creating these beautiful pieces of art.
In this blog post, we will take a look at the work of three landscape painters, John DyerJoanne Short and Ted Dyer, who have all captured the beauty of the landscape in their paintings. Each artist has a unique style, but they all share a love for capturing the essence of Cornwall in their work. We will also discuss the inspiration behind these beautiful works of art.

Both the UK and France are a wonder of the natural world and a landscape painter's dream, and both have played a big part in these three artists paintings. With its rugged coastline, sheltered coves and stunning gardens, Cornwall provides plenty of inspiration for artists, as does France, with its changing light and colourful landscape. 

Tresco Abbey Gardens is one of the most beautiful and unique places in the world. Situated on the island of Tresco - part of the group of islands off the tip of Cornwall called the Isles of Scilly, the gardens are full of tropical plants and flowers, towering palms, magnificent proteas, agave, and many, many other exotic plants that create the perfect painter's paradise.
Cornwall is known for its dramatic coastline, with its rolling beaches and steep cliffs. In this new set of open edition prints by Ted Dyer, you can explore the seaside scenes of Cornwall in all their glory. From small sailing boats to children playing on the beach, these prints are a celebration of Cornwall's natural beauty. They are also a great way to bring a piece of Cornwall into your home! This amazing collection of Cornwall art prints is exclusive to The John Dyer Gallery.
