We are so proud to have been awarded 'Plastic Free Coastlines Approved Status' from Surfers Against Sewage, and delighted to see that other local business along our beautiful coastline are doing the same.

Here at the Summerhouse we believe in making everything as environmentally friendly as we can, this includes using recycled packaging and eliminating the use of plastic wherever possible.

Through making a series of tiny changes, we will really be able to see a difference in the future, to find out ways in which you can help eliminate the heartbreaking problem of plastic waste along our coast and in our oceans, visit https://www.sas.org.uk/

Mary Ann Green

Capturing the Magic of Movement through Dance

Mary Ann Green undertook her art education at Mid Warwickshire College of Art and Goldsmiths College, London before moving to Cornwall in the early 1970s. Since 1998 she has been involved with the Rambert Dance Company during their visits to the Hall for Cornwall, working with them during rehearsal, her work captured the human form both in movement and at rest. Her work is both well established and well loved and in 2005 she was shortlisted for the Jerwood Drawing Prize.

Kate Richardson debuts a new, abstract style at The Summerhouse

New Directions

We are excited to launch 'The Lower Deck' at The Summerhouse, a new, intimate and beautiful space at the rear of the gallery. To celebrate this we are holding a show for Kate Richardson.

'New Directions' focuses on Kates journey into the abstract. The work is a unique expression of freedom bound by minimal use of colour but boundless in its imagination. Through blending a limited yet dramatic pallette 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'

The show will be held in our 'lower deck' and will begin on Sunday the 10th of June at 2pm, with drinks and nibbles and a chance to meet Kate and hear firsthand the inspirations behind this stunning new body of work.

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.
