Arts & Culture
Be inspired by what's around you
Scilly has inspired a thriving artistic community. From exquisite silver jewellery to stunning fine art collections, from fired earthenware and stained glass to lino-cut prints and silk scarves, creativity abounds on every island, inspired by our stunning surroundings.
What brings this artistic community here? Well, the beauty of Scilly is obvious, but the quality of light and the natural environment provide an ideal setting for photographers, painters, potters and craftspeople.
Resident and visiting artists paint in beach studios, landscape photographers capture changing moods, beachcombers make jewellery, and potters create objects of beauty. And for the rest of us, there are many, many galleries to view and feast our senses on the extensive range of styles and media used. Some galleries also run courses and workshops throughout the year.
Throughout the season, Scilly welcomes visiting theatre companies, notably the Miracle Theatre.
