Welcome to Tamarisk Gallery
Tamarisk Gallery is located in the Isles of Scilly, an area which draws artists from far and wide due to its unique light and the inspiration which comes from its unparalleled natural beauty. The gallery itself is based in the centre of bustling Hugh Town on St Mary’s and showcases the very of best local art.
Many artists and craftspeople who feature in our gallery live locally but we also exhibit works by artists from Cornwall and further afield who have a connection to the islands or have been inspired by their visits to the archipelago. Artwork predominantly centres around Scilly’s changing seascape, an endless source of inspiration.
Due to government restrictions, the gallery is currently closed but please do feel free to contact us via email: or via our social media channels. We look forward to welcoming you back in when it is safe to do so.
We are located in the centre of Hugh Town, the bustling hub of St Mary’s in the Isles of Scilly. Find us on the corner between the Galley Restaurant and the Foredeck. During the summer, we are open Monday to Saturday 10am – 5pm and welcome everyone from browsers to art collectors.
Tamarisk, a mother and daughter venture by Oriel Hicks and Erica Swain was set up in 2016. Oriel has been making and selling her own creative glass work for over 25 years from her studio at the Phoenix Craft Workshops on St. Mary’s, while Erica is the creative force behind many of our card and gift ranges.
Tamarisk exhibits a broad range of contemporary art, much of it by celebrated local artists such as Chris Smith, Sue Lewington and Imogen Bone.
Alongside this, we are proud to display work by local craftspeople and silversmiths.
We are presently closed due to government restrictions but please do continue to contact us using the normal channels- please see our contact details opposite.
We have worked to make the gallery as accessible as possible and have widened walkways where possible although we are somewhat limited by Scillonian architecture and planning.
We share a door with the Foredeck and there is a small step upon entry to the foyer and another small step as you enter the gallery. Staff are on hand to help and will also be happy to bring artwork to you.
We are fortunate to have large windows with much of our artists' work displayed and visible from outside the gallery. Please contact us if you would like any further information or help.
