Our amazing view

Open seven days a week (363 days a year) Beside The Wave is located in the main street of Falmouth in Cornwall in a regency building overlooking the sea.
The gallery opened its doors in 1989, and is now one of Cornwall's best known and well established contemporary art venues and has an international following of collectors.
Art works are predominantly rooted in the landscape, with Cornwall's rich coast, countryside, towns and villages providing the inspiration for much of the work that we show. In addition, a number of our artists focus on paintings of place in a wider sense, including interiors and still lifes. We also exhibit ceramics, jewellery and limited edition prints.
Contemporary impressionists, such as Andrew Tozer, Amanda Hoskin, Benjamin Warner and Sarah Wimperis mix with colourists such as Richard Tuff, Emma Dunbar, Alasdair Lindsay and Miles Oxenford, and the abstract expressionist work of Miles Heseltine. Paul Lewin and Chris Rigby are exceptional painters of coast and cliffs and Andrew Giddens' wave paintings are a spiritual homage to the natural world.
With over thirty artists represented, the gallery offers a wide range of exceptional work to those wishing to start or extend their collections.

With our very fine crew ready to make your visit to the gallery as special as you would like it to be.  From information about our artists, how and why they paint the way they do, finding the right colour in a painting to match your new curtains (honestly that's not unusual), organising careful delivery of purchased paintings across continents to personal delivery on a special date.  They are there to help you.  If you live locally make us a welcome and revitalising place to pop in to, if you are down on holiday be sure to pay us a visit.
We look forward to meeting you.
