“Best Gallery in St Ives”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2012

Much more enjoyable than the "tin can" along the seafront which brought us to St Ives.
Barbara Hepworths work is ideally displayed in the garden... which is interesting in itself. Her studio is also interesting.

“If you love sculpture”

If you are a sculpture nut like me then to see the Brabqara Hepworth originals in her garden setting was a real treat.

“Quick look”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2012

If you like the statues there are a lot, but illustrates their similarities - not much else there, although if you took guided tour and were really interested in B Hepworth you would probably like it, if not overly interested I would give it a miss

Great to see where she worked and a great many of her pieces together. As a sculptor myself, a good source of inspiration.

“A time capsule.”

You get a great feeling here and you feel like Ms Hepworth is lurking behind a bush in her garden....perhaps she is!
