A tiny art exhibition will open inside an upturned fishing boat in Glendurgan Garden near Mawnan Smith on April 8.

The Boat Shed Gallery claims to be Cornwall's smallest art gallery and was created by Matthew Walmsley, who also curated the exhibition.

It features work from local artists and others that have been inspired by time spent in Cornwall, and the exhibition is based on the theme of life by the sea and coastal change.

Seven artists have their work displayed in the exhibition: Ria Poole, Geraldine Wallace, Helend Prudames, Sarah Capper, Nigel Maynard, Claire Thorpe, and Laura Wakeham; and there are also poems on display by Candy Neubert.

The design of the gallery was inspired by the way that fisherman on the island of Lindisfarne use upturned Coble boats to make sheds that store nets and other equipment.

The exhibition is run in partnership with the National Trust and is organised and funded by the University of Exeter.

It runs daily from April 8 - July 15.
