Mainland UK's most southerly art space. Lizard point, Cornwall

Mainland UK’s most southerly art space is an initiative for artists to take up short residencies and share their artwork inspired by British Natural history, its land and sea and Life on the Lizard peninsula.  Artists working in many different styles and mediums, no matter at what stage in their artistic journey, are welcome.

Visitors can see Nature and Lizard life through the eyes the artists and their creations.


Spending Time With People, Nature and Art


Stunning location

Next to the last building in mainland Britain nestles an old brick built storeroom, or it has been for nearly 100 years. in 2015 local artist Ian Griffiths together with the owners, the National trust, decided to breathe new life into the building and at the same time keep the charm of its fabric in tact. With a generous benefactor this was achieved and the Polpeor gallery and studio took shape. In 2018 another benefactor was so impressed with the building and the aims of the PAN project that funds were made available to improve the building by replacing the roof and improving the general condition of the building. Ian also has continued to work on the inside and has refurbished the hanging space at the same time keeping the 'sense of place'

The aim or the PAN project is to interact with visitors through art that depicts British natural history and in particular the Natural history and life of the Lizard peninsular. PEOPLE - ART - NATURE



With in excess of 200,000 visitors per annum Lizard point is an ideal location to share art with visitors and residents alike and talk to people about your work and inspiration. Visitors from across the globe come to stay awhile at the point.


The project does not seek judge anyone's work and firmly believes that every piece is an opportunity to share nature through another's eyes.


Nature is all around us from the sweeping vistas of the clifftop to the depths of the sea, the 'Chawing' of the Choughs overhead and the aerial displays of feeding Gannets. What we do as artists is interpret these scenes in unique ways.
