Maggie O'Brien moved from London to West Cornwall in 2006, and has gained national recognition for her paintings and artistic projects which are created to draw awareness of the increase in marine waste, man made developments over important natural habitats and other environmental changes.
'I paint and draw outside whenever I can and am most concerned with the elemental, with the effects of weather and light and the changing seasons. I use a variety of techniques and materials and the work is a mixture of place, memory and imagination.'
TO SUBMIT WORK TO THE SUMMERHOUSE GALLERY
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
Monday- Friday: 10.30-5.30
