Cornish Galleries launches original art platform for private clients, businesses and interior designers.

  • Aims to make original Cornish art accessible and affordable to more people and companies
  • Represents more than 30 Cornish artists and launches with over 100 works of original Cornish art

Cornish Galleries (, the first dedicated platform for contemporary Cornish artists featuring art rental, launches with a range of initiatives designed to make Cornish art more visible, accessible and affordable. The online service provides business clients with the ability to rent original art, or “try before you buy”, and have it delivered direct to their door. Unlike online marketplaces that simply connect buyers and sellers, Cornish Galleries is a curated gallery and provides both clients and artists with a fully managed service.

Based in South East Cornwall, Cornish Galleries has been founded by Marielle Newton, an artist living, working and exhibiting in Cornwall, and Mark Gibbons who spent the best part of two decades heading up a leading online agency in London before relocating to Cornwall in 2012.

“There is a growing demand for original art – unique statement pieces – rather than mass produced prints. Original art creates one of a kind spaces with real personality and we hope that being able to enjoy original work in your home or business environment, easily and affordably, will make Cornish art much more accessible.” says Marielle Newton, co-founder of Cornish Galleries. “Even well-established Cornish artists will benefit greatly from our curated approach and online expertise as we work to promote and market them effectively to wider audiences.”

“Original art transforms spaces rapidly and extremely cost effectively. This includes working environments where great art not only inspires and motivates the workforce, it also communicates brand and company values to customers, suppliers and the community. The flexibility of our web platform and our business rental offering make it easier than ever to enjoy the benefits of original art in the workplace.” says Mark Gibbons, co-founder of Cornish Galleries. “Interior designers too will find Cornish Galleries invaluable as a source of inspiring Cornish art that can be installed as a rental and subsequently purchased at the clients’ discretion.”
