Colour & Space is an Art Gallery based in the seaside town of Perranporth in Cornwall. The gallery exhibits a fantastic selection of established and emerging artists that specialise in painting and printmaking alongside a selection of handmade gifts and greetings cards.
We believe that art should be affordable and enjoyed by all.
The Gallery exhibits a range of stylish artwork designed to bring some colour into your home. With a wealth of artistic talent in Cornwall we delight in showcasing some of the best artwork that reflects our local environment, from the rugged clifftops to the stunning sunsets over Perranporth Beach.
Each exhibition will display a collection of linocuts, etchings, screen prints and paintings from the website and will promote enjoying affordable art in a relaxed and friendly environment.
Colour & Space is owned and run by partners Rebecca Darch and Gareth Ellis who grew up in Cornwall and share a love of the outdoors and getting involved in all sorts of creative projects. Rebecca has been involved within the art sector for over 15 years and has been painting for most of her life. She studied Art Practice at Glamorgan University 2004-2007 and it is from here that her interest in curation and exhibition design began to develop and lead her to study her Masters in Curatorial Practice at Falmouth University, graduating in 2009. From here Rebecca has worked in galleries and arts organisations across Cornwall and the South West and gained invaluable experience along the way.
Gareth Ellis works as a qualified architect, he studied for his BA in Architecture & Planning at University of the West of England and his MA in Architecture at the University of Bath. He has always had a creative side and over the last few years has taken up printmaking, particularly screen printing. He enjoys capturing the different landscapes around Cornwall and simplifying the shapes and colours that he sees to make beautiful pieces of art for everyone to enjoy.
Rebecca and Gareth moved to Bath in 2013 both furthering their careers and enjoying a different lifestyle. Although they loved their time there they knew the lure of Cornwall and their families was too great and in 2018 returned to their roots and Rebecca began setting up Colour & Space. Since then Colour & Space successfully launched the website and has exhibited at various venues including Truro Home & Lifestyle Show, Breeze Art & Makers Fair and The Lost Gardens of Heligan.
On August 11th 2021 Rebecca was delighted to open her first Art Gallery in Perranporth. Since then the space has gone on to be a success and an exciting first step for Colour & Space.
