Born in the fishing town of Newlyn in 1974, Nick Praed grew up around the harbour and subsequently went to sea at the age of 18. His work at that time deeply reflected his many experiences at sea working on the boats and his love for that environment and still does today.
While the sea is still very much the feature in Nick's work, it is now more about capturing the beauty of the Cornish coastline and it's ever changing moods. You will still find the occasional throw back to the fishing industry, a job which he still dip's in and out of but his subject matter has shifted to the many cliff's, cove's and headland's of this beautiful county.
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.
Tuesday - Friday: 10.30-5.30
