About us

…a gallery based in glorious Cornwall in the SW of England, owned by Nigel Bell featuring the work of his wife, award-wining, international artist, Sarah Bell.  

Whether you are visiting here for the salty sea air, turquoise ocean, traditional or contemporary architecture, rocky coastline, artists, surfers, chefs, fishing boats and summer yachts....(or perhaps you are visiting just online), Chapel Street Art and Nigel Bell are here to help you browse and choose stunning, life-enhancing contemporary Cornish art for your home and workplace.

Whatever your taste may be, we are here to help……You’ll find lots of original art: Sarah Bell’s watercolour paintings in all shapes and sizes ; BIG statement prints on canvas; small originals sometimes in oil or acrylics or mixed media; hand pulled artists prints: screen prints and lino-cuts, packs of stunning greetings cards, and other lovely affordable gifts.

And if you fall in love with Sarah’s art and want to try painting in watercolours yourself, we can point you in the direction of Sarah’s beautiful light-filled studio just a few minutes walk from our bricks-and- mortar gallery in Penzance. There you can learn how to paint with watercolours and how to draw with Sarah on selected workshop dates throughout the year and take home your very own Cornish painting...
