Coverack is well represented when it comes to art. A number of professional artists live and work here or nearby, and the village also boasts a thriving art society. We have an art gallery in the centre of the village.
Coverack Art Society
Annual membership is £30, and visitors can drop in for the day at a cost of £5.

The Coverack Art Society, formerly known as the Coverack Art Club, was founded in 1972.
In the last year or so we have acquired a number of new members, and membership currently stands at around 35.
We have some experienced artists in our ranks, but newcomers of all abilities are always given a warm welcome, and offered every encouragement.
The kettle is always on the go, and participants bring their own packed lunches, or heat up soup in the hall kitchen.
The hall is well heated and cosy, even in the coldest weather.
We meet at Lambeage Hall on Mondays from September to June, from 10.30am to 3.30pm, and participants are free to come for full sessions, or attend for only part of the day if it suits them better.
In the summer months we meet at various outdoor venues to paint.
We have regular workshop days at Lambeage Hall with visiting artists - usually on a monthly basis.
These take the form of a practical demonstration, followed by an afternoon session when participants can try out new techniques and styles, guided by the visiting artist.
These workshops are very popular, and visitors can join in at a cost of £10.
We have pastel artist Lynn Golden coming to us on Feb 20, and palette knife painter Joe Armstrong on March 27. Other workshops will be arranged for later in the year.
We will be holding our third annual Easter exhibition at the Lifeboat Studio in Porthleven from April 14 - 19, and our big summer show will be at Lambeage Hall, Coverack, from August 4 - 13.
