Christmas At The Summerhouse

Beautifully crafted gifts and plenty of Festive Cheer at The Gallery This December

Here at The Summerhouse we love the festive season, and will be offering all sorts of beautiful treats for your loved ones (or yourself!) from beautifully crafted stocking fillers, to larger sculptures and paintings. We source work from some of the finest creatives that Cornwall has to offer and will no doubt provide the perfect presents this Christmas.

From Friday the 1st of December, we will be opening until 6pm on Friday evenings right up until Christmas, to give you some extra time after work to come and browse, a warming cup of mulled wine and some locally made sweet treats will also be on offer.

Painting On The Round

Our Stunning New Collection Of Work By Colin Caffell

We are delighted to welcome ceramicist Colin Caffell to our family of artists here at The Summerhouse. With work described as a 'painting on the round' his pots and vessels depict the colours and textures of the ocean and moorland which surrounds us here in west Cornwall.

From statement fluted vases to more traditional bold minoan shaped pots his work is a unique and beautiful homage to the areas beautiful and dramatic scenery.

Caffell has exhibited throughout Great Britain and has work in private collections in Europe, South Africa, Australia and the U.S.A. In recent years he has exhibited with the RBA, both at the Mall Galleries in London and at the Henley Festival of Music and the Arts.

A full selection of Colins work can be found under the 'Artists' section of our website.

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.
