We’ll be taking a short break…

We will be closed for our ‘freedom from self-isolating’ holiday from 7th – 14th August re-opening on the 15th August 2020. Please email us if you want us – [email protected] – and when we return we will be opening on Tuesdays too.

As usual, you can always ‘phone us if we’re closed and if we can we’ll open up, or we can arrange an appointment for personal browsing!

COVID-19 Update

We’re very excited to have opened the doors to our little gallery in Milford on Sea, where we will be open Wednesday-Saturday from 10am-4pm. There are social distancing rules in place in our shop.

We might also open at other times in the week, however if you would like to book an appointment to come to the gallery out of hours, or to do some personal shopping, please call us on 01590 619180.

PS. Don’t forget, we will also still be taking orders through the website or the phone.


Our gallery is full of exciting artwork by artists well known and emerging.

Tradewinds is a family run gallery featuring a wonderfully curated collection of exciting work by artists, well known and emerging. We operate from two lovely locations: one in the seaside village of Milford-on-Sea on the boundary of the New Forest and one from our home-base at Praa Sands, which is almost at the very end of the beautifully wild county of Cornwall. Bringing together an eclectic collection of work from all over the United Kingdom, we try to promote artists local to both galleries; all true craftspeople who are inspired and also inspire.

The younger members of our family team have dragged us into the 21st Century and we have set up an online shop to help promote our artists’ work. This is a new venture for us, so please have a look, give it a go perhaps, and tell us what you think. You can contact us by email, a letter (how lovely!), by telephoning or popping into the gallery for a good old-fashioned face to face chat – the coffee pot is usually on!

We hope that you find something you love, and if there is anything we can help you with just let us know.
