Following updated advice from the Government on non-essential contact, we have taken the decision to cancel all forthcoming events for the foreseeable future. We apologise for any inconvenience and disappointment. This was not an easy decision to make, but the health and safety of our team and of our visitors must be our priority.

Rainbow Flag is a temporary neon installation by artist Peter Freeman, commissioned by Newlyn Art Galllery & The Exchange to celebrate LGBTQIA+ History Month. Situated in the Studio Café at Newlyn Art Gallery, the form of the flag echoes the shape of the large picture window and the neon light fills the space with vibrant colour.

Peter Freeman is interested in the beauty and emotional quality of artificial light. His light sculptures and installations are poetic solutions using electric light and digital technologies to transform architectural spaces and create uplifting luminous forms that celebrate light and bring pleasure to the senses.
