Summer Show Extension!
Following the success of our one man show; Michael Praed: Paper, Pencil, Paint, and a wonderful feature in The Western Morning News, we have decided to extend the show for a while longer.
This means there is still a chance to visit the gallery and explore a range of Michaels work, featuring both contemporary paintings, alongside retrospective pieces, original sketches and pastel work.
Also on display at The Summerhouse are a selection of artists who we are always delighted to showcase. We have some simply stunning new work from John Piper , Mike Hindle, Imogen Bone and Neil Pinkett, who have lent their unique styles to capturing the beauty of West Cornwall and the surrounding area; its moorlands, clifftops, oceans and the ever dramatic weather. Another artist currently on show is Kit Johns , painting on 100 year old maps. The detail of this work needs to be seen in the flesh.
We have also introduced a new artist to the gallery , our very own Ellie Samuels . As well as senior gallery consultant here at the gallery , Ellie works as a specialist in Mandala artwork. These pieces are incredibly intricate and very beautiful. Prints are also available of this unusual and special work.
Essex Tylers wonderful ceramics add another dimension to the gallery, their bold shapes and iridescent shades emulate the traditional Japanese pottery technique of Raku and are simply stunning pieces of craftsmanship.
We would like to extend our thanks to all who have made this show such a special event, and are so pleased it has been enjoyed as it has.
