A Cornish Springtime

Our Easter show at The Summerhouse

We are excited to celebrate the much anticipated start of the new season with our first show of 2019, 'A Cornish Springtime’.

Featuring Helen Jones, Maggie O'Brien and Iona Sanders our collective of talented female artists capture and celebrate the seasons change in their own unique way.

Helen Jones explores the colours of the land, sky and sea; creating dramatic abstract landscapes filled with texture and colour from peachy pinks as the skies warm up to contrasting icy grey cloudscapes as winter storms linger on.

Maggie O'Brien captures serenity and light with her figurative and still life work, using a muted and beautifully effective colour palette along with her signature moth paintings which are loved by so many.

Iona Sanders utilising her naive style and bright colours to create a body of bold, bright blooms and fruits as a nod to new life.

The show will run throughout Easter and is supported by other Summerhouse Favourites, including Mike Hindle, Kit Johns and Michael Praed among others.



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/.

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.
