A Passion for Cornwall’s Art Heritage


There are more than 70 museums in Cornwall of great variety and individuality, including; art galleries, castles, mines, historic properties, industrial heritage sites and tiny community museums. Many more collections are held in community archives. Cornwall’s diverse heritage organisations offer something unique and special, they provide fantastic services for their communities and achieve high standards. 

Cornwall Museums Partnership and SW Museum Development recognise the excellence within these organisations and want to reward the wonderful work you do and share your achievements through our Cornwall Heritage Awards 2020.

In this guest blog, we hear a little from one of our award sponsors, The Art of Cornwall…

The Art of Cornwall are delighted to be sponsoring the ‘One to Watch’ award in the Cornwall Heritage Awards 2020, a great way to support future work, showcase best practice and share great ideas.

The Art of Cornwall are very passionate and proud to be sharing Cornwall’s heritage in art culture to the world. We would like to collaboratively work with and support Cornwall’s inspirational community of artists, artisans, galleries, museums, art societies and suppliers to showcase their exquisite collections, and advance our customers’ understanding of Cornwall’s heritage for arts and crafts.

Our mission is to invest in our members, partners and sixth form students, not just providing them with an online profile and gallery to sell their products and raise their brand, but to be placed directly in front of the consumer.

The Art of Cornwall is incorporated by PH Media, a small local company based in Roche, who have 25 years’ reprographic experience in high end fashion magazines. PH Media, having recently been awarded highly commended at the Print Week 2019 Awards, are a member of the Fine Art Trade Guild and uniquely placed as one of the few fine art printers in the UK to hold ArtSure accreditation.

PH Media can offer fine art scanning print services which will transform your images into museum grade Fine Art Giclée Prints. The Art of Cornwall members can utilise the remarkable qualities of our 3D scanning device which captures the relief of the original to a depth of 8mm. We are the only company in the South West to own a 3D scanner and The Art of Cornwall members will receive 10% discount off this service.

We will be exhibiting at Fowey gift fayre this coming weekend, 7th and 8th December, so please do come and say hello to The Art of Cornwall team and one of our members, Ray Youngs, Cornish Glass Jewellery, on stand number 23 in the Leisure Centre.

We look forward to seeing you!
