8pm - Midnight


Since opening in May 2011 Fish Factory has become Cornwall's diamond in the rough art space, providing a forum for unique and exceptional art practice against a background of industrial chic with a stunning view of the ocean to boot! Fish Factory itself is an old scallop processing and packing factory on Falmouth Wharves, now brought back to life with a new direction. It is a truly unique experience, completely unlike any gallery or venue in Falmouth and surrounding areas. The space features gallery space, studios and space for rehearsals, workshops, talks...anything.

Having been closed for the wintery months we are re-opening our doors on March 10th with a new look, publication and big ideas about the year to come. All are welcome to join us in celebrating between 8pm and Midnight on the 10/03/2012 at Fish Factory, where you will be able to get a first glimpse of the new exhibition and sup on a pint of local beer.

Countdown to the re-launch with us at

~~~ THE OUTPUT ~~~

While closed, Fish Factory has gained a new member of the team - the Epson LQ-2180. This blast from the past is a dot-matrix printer from the eighties and will be constantly printing monthly publications keeping you up to date on all the exhibitions, workshops, discussions, live music and more for each month. The next OUTPUT will be the March edition and will be available at the launch on the 10/03/2012.

Light Object Light
The materiality of the image as object in contrast with the ephemeral, yet ever present digital condition. This first exhibition of 2012 at the Fish Factory Art Space explores and compares the use of both physical and digital image manipulation to express the artists' identity or agenda.
