founded in 1927 
St Ives has been a melting pot of inspiration for artists for over 100 years. The draw of the breathtaking scenery, and the rich colours that reflect off the crystal clear seas makes St Ives the perfect place for artists to express their creative talents.  
The St Ives Society of Artists was formed by marine artist George Fagan Bradshaw in 1927.  
The Society’s exhibition programmes feature work chosen by guest curators, and invited exhibitions that are a diverse mix of contemporary visual art.
