FAR WEST: Our July show at the Summerhouse

Far West sees a collective of exciting new artists explore the magic of West Cornwall. For centuries, the beauty and myth of the area has inspired artists to create in homage to the wild green moorland, which rolls down to the rugged coastline and the calm lap of waves on the shoreline, or tempestuous stormy oceans. All set against that magical light which can only be found here.

Featuring Kit Johns, Helen Jones, Jack Davis and Jade Bowmer, with sculpture by Tom Leaper and ceramic work by Jake Boex the show will comprise of an array of mediums, techniques and voices; juxtaposing to create a bright, dynamic and magical celebration of this beautiful place we call home.

The show opens with a private view on Thursday 12th July and will run from the 13th-26th. View the online catalogue by clicking on the picture or the arrow below.

Kate Richardson debuts a new, abstract style at The Summerhouse

New Directions

In June we were thrilled to debut Kate Richardsons journey into the abstract, with her one woman show New Directions.

The body of work is a unique expression of freedom bound by minimal use of colour but boundless in its imagination. Through blending a limited yet dramatic palette of bold colour and ethereal light with dynamic texture; Kates work takes you on a journey into the realms of the celestial.

'I’m now working with new textures and layers, rusts and patinas. The freedom to experiment and create from the heart without constraint is truly liberating. I’ve never been more excited as an artist'

Click on the image above to view a short film highlighting the inspirations that drove Kates creative exploration.

Here at The Summerhouse we love to support both established and new, up and coming artists with an affinity to Cornwall. We do recieve a very large volume of submissions, and although we take care to view every artists work, it is very difficult to discuss work with every single artist who gets in touch.

Please send us a selection of work which you feel best represents you, along with an artists statement and a list of other galleries which represent your work if applicable. You can email this to info@summerhousegallery.co.uk or post to our address, with contact details (email or telephone) which we can reach you via should your application be successful. 

We look forward to hearing from you.
