Welcome to Tamarisk Gallery
Established at the end of the 2016 season, Tamarisk Gallery is based in the centre of Hugh Town, St Mary’s, Isles of Scilly.
The unique light of the islands draws talented artists from far and wide and Tamarisk showcases the best of local art and craft. We have also carefully selected some work from further afield to complement our existing range. Artwork predominantly centres around Scilly’s changing seascape, an endless source of inspiration.
As well as contemporary art, we also stock smaller, locally designed gifts such as tea towels and coaster sets, books and soaps made from locally distilled essential oils.
With prices ranging from £5.00 – £2,000. we have something to suit every pocket.
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, the Island T Shirt Company and Foredeck. We are open Monday to Saturday 10am – 5pm. You are very welcome to visit.
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 local artists. We are now the only place on St Mary’s to display paintings by Chris Smith. We also exhibit work by Sue Lewington who lived and worked on St Martin’s for a number of years and Imogen Bone who spent ten years living and working on St Mary’s.
Open Monday to Saturday 9.30am to 5pm.
Open some Sundays and bank holidays in the high season.
Please note that our opening hours may be less frequent during January and February on account of the low season.
If you cannot contact us in the gallery for any reason, please pop into Phoenix Craft Studios at Porthmellon and speak to Oriel Hicks, or email us and we can open the gallery by appointment.
