Spring at The Summerhouse
A show to celebrate our grand re-opening
The Summerhouse invites you to join us in a celebration of Spring, our first show of 2017 which will see our newly renovated gallery displaying the work from featured artists Imogen Bone and Iona Sanders.
Using flashes of fresh green against bold yellow flower buds, Imogen captures the environment at its most beautiful through the use of colour and identifiable, bold brush stroke. Her work is as much a celebration of our surroundings as a call to stop and appreciate them. Imogen has rapidly become viewed as one of the most exciting talents to come out of Cornwall in recent years and The Summerhouse are delighted to have her as the lead artist for their opening show.
Iona's work sees bursts of colour from fruit and flowers pop from muted backgrounds, an exciting and instantly recognisable body of work with an important focus on narrative. Iona is a rising star whose work has received critical acclaim in London and throughout the South West.
The Summerhouse is also thrilled to welcome renowned sculptor Tom Leaper to our family of talented artists. His incredible sculptures will be introduced to the gallery within this show along with the work of John piper, Michael Strang, Kit Johns, Michael Praed and Theresa Gilder.
Our show will be running from the 4th-18th of April.
