Art and Galleries

agw_imogen_064The exquisite landscape of Scilly provides inspiration for travelling artists and local artists alike. We are certainly not short of artistic talents and uniquely designed art in Scilly, despite the small population. Artists in Scilly are incredibly resourceful, whether its gathering shards of glass and shell from the beaches to create wonderful jewellery or collecting driftwood and fashioning rustic frames for their paintings, artists in Scilly make full use of the environment physically as well as inspirationally.

steve sherrisArtists often comment on the extraordinary quality of light in the islands, because there is little pollution here, the air clarity is great and the spectrum of light is vast. Similarly, the water is so clear it reflects the sun's rays perfectly. These elements as well as the natural splendour of the unspoilt scenery and exotic plantlife make Scilly fantastical in a variety of mediums from watercolour to oils and pencils to pastels. Bring a sketchbook and capture your own scenes of Scilly, or visit the artists at their galleries:
