Tregony Gallery was established in 1998. Since taking over Tregony Gallery in 2015 the gallery has gone through extensive re-branding and repositioning as an artist run gallery focusing and supporting strong high quality figurative painting. Located in the heart of the ancient village of Tregony, it is close to St Mawes and the beautiful beaches of South Cornwall, the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan.

With a distinctive program of regularly changing exhibitions showcasing the very best in contemporary and traditional Cornish Art, and an extensive range of paintings, sculpture and ceramics available, Tregony Gallery is the perfect place to enjoy a balance of original work by emerging and established British and contemporary artists, predominately from the South West of England as well as from London and further afield.

Each year we give a Tregony Gallery Art Prize to a young artist whose forward progression is the Fine Arts.

ABOUT US

Gallery Directors, Brian and Judi Green, started out at advertising agency JWT. Working as Art Directors on many Blue Chip brands, they set up design consultancy The Green House in the early 1980s, building an impressive client list from Disney Interactive, L’Oreal, Debenhams, Marks & Spencer, Lowenbrau and Shepherd Neame to Sir Lenny Henry, and winning several international design and packaging awards.

In 1987 Judi won the very first National Westminster Bank ‘Enterprising Woman of the Year’ competition, going on to judge the Design Week awards for several years.

Brian was appointed Design Director and Judi, Creative Director of Wagstaff’s ( now called Loewy ) when the two branding companies merged in 1997, and in 1999 Judi became Group Creative Director of publishing company Dorland Kindersley.

Making a brave decision in 2000, Judi relinquished her full time design career to focus on painting. Already with a B.A ( Hons ) in Graphic Design from Kingston School of Art, and having studied painting at the Slade School of Fine Art, she was awarded a place on The Drawing MA programme at the Royal Drawing School.

Residencies include Kensington Palace 2009, Dumfries House 2015 and Moritz-Heyman Residency at Pignano 2019

Group shows include The Threadneedle Prize, RA Summer Exhibition, Lynn Painter-Stainers Prize, Discerning Eye, Royal Society of Portrait Painters, Royal West Academy and Royal Society of Oil Painters. Her work has exhibited at the Project Gallery, Arundel, Medici Gallery, Cork Street London, The Wykeham Gallery, Stockbridge, Highgate Contemporary Gallery and Tregony Gallery, Cornwall.

Widely collected, Judi’s work can be found in numerous private collections including The Royal Collection, Dumfries House, Dawn French, Sir Clive Woodward OBE, Mr. Anthony Van Laast MBE and Sir Lenny Henry.

Brian went freelance in 2000, working on an exciting range of projects creating corporate identities, design and advertising for clients including charities Beating Bowel Cancer and Save the Baby and ranging from fast food, financial services to education and confectionary. Recent projects include Douglas Road Productions for Sir Lenny Henry and the re-branding for Tregony Gallery.

After more than 35 years working in the creative industries, Brian and Judi have cultivated their ability to spot artists and makers of a very high quality, that have something different about how they see and interpret the world. They pride themselves on having generated an impressive roster of artists using their unique eye to attract talent from the UK and America.
