Toe in the Water Gallery was established by Artist / Photographer Max Harrower.


The Gallery features an extremely varied range of art and crafts primarily created by local artists who have been inspired in their work by the picturesque sea and coastline around us.


All the art and crafts in the gallery has been lovingly created by talented artists who are passionate about their work. We do not sell anything that has been mass produced. 


This website is a greate place to browse our collection of art, but a visit to the gallery is a must, in order to really appreciate some of the wonderful items.


The website is intended to showcase examples of work created by our artists and therefore we cannot guarantee that an items viewed on here will still be available. We will howver have similar items by each artist or can usually source these for you, so please do enquire if you see somethjing of interest.


Canvas Prints by resident owner/artist Max Harrower are available to purchase online as these are made to order. Please visit the Online Shop section of the site to view these.


We hope you enjoy your visit and look forward to welcoming you to the gallery in Fowey.

Do you allow Dogs in the Gallery?


Due to limited space in the Gallery, there is often artwork displayed at a lower level and therefore it is not possible for us to allow dogs unless they are small enough and are carried.



I don't know Fowey very well, where can I find you?

We are located near the bottom of Lostwithiel Street, just a short stroll up the hill from Trafalgar Square and Town Quay. The map below will help!
