N.B. Due to the pandemic we are no longer seeing customers in person but operate online only. We hope to resume in person appointments to view original paintings in the late spring of 2022.

The John Dyer Gallery is operated online and by a strictly appointment only basis. We are based in Falmouth, Cornwall and situated on the peninsular towards the Falmouth Hotel end of town. We exhibit Cornish paintings.

N.B. We only offer appointments for viewing and purchasing original paintings.We are unable to provide appointments to view gifts, books, art posters, art prints or limited edition prints as those are exclusively available to purchase online.

To visit us please send us a message from our contact form several days before you are in the area and we will find a convenient time and day for you to view. We will at that stage send you exact directions on how to find us in Falmouth as we are not a retail gallery. 

We operate this policy to ensure you have a personal and unique experience while viewing and we are able to focus on our art without the distractions of running a retail business. In the words of a very happy previous client:


"Everyone should see this place and the paintings how they should be seen. Through beautiful Victorian windows with the gorgeous Cornish sunshine shining through."



We very much look forward to meeting you soon; online or in person when we can, after Covid-19.

Following last week's blog"The Magical History of Painting in St Ives: The Artists Who Were Drawn to Its Soft Light and Turquoise Sea" John and I decided that we should explore the area ourselves and take in the beauty of all the things St Ives and the surrounding area have to offer. If you're looking for a picturesque walk with plenty of art history thrown in, look no further than the route from Carbis Bay to St Ives. The winding path takes you past some stunning scenery and through the quaint town of St Ives, home to many famous artists over the years. We'll take a look at some of their work and explore the town that played such an important role in their development.
The seaside town of St Ives, Cornwall, has been a popular destination for artists since the 1800s. The soft light and dramatic scenery have drawn painters, photographers, and sculptors to the town to capture its beauty on canvas and in sculpture. In this blog post, we will take a look at the history of British art and painting in St Ives and theartists who were drawn to its unique landscape. It's an incredible place with a rich history and beautiful scenery.
Looking at paintings of a beach scene can transport you to a different place. You can feel the sand between your toes, the sun on your skin, and the breeze in your hair. These paintings are not just beautiful to look at; they transport us to the place of holiday memories and time spent having fun. In this blog post, we will take a look at several famous historic beach paintings and see how they have influenced our work here at The John Dyer Gallery.
The people in your life are special, and they deserve special gifts. If you love Cornwall or art then why not give them a unique Cornish gift?
