Let The Light In

Let The Light In

30 April to 30 May 2020

A brand new online show featuring Iona Sanders, Imogen Bone and Amy Albright.We are sending our very best wishes to each and every one of you during these most strange and difficult of times. Whether or not to go ahead with our spring show, and move to an online exhibition, was a decision we did not take lightly. But life without art, music or theatre is a much darker place, and I strongly feel this beautiful, uplifting work by such talented Cornish artists, sitting here in our gallery and delivered just before the lockdown, needs to be shared. So, we are proud to be hosting an online show, with a catalogue full of beautiful and inspiring work from our lovely artists, and an accompanying slideshow which will be shared on social media. The name ‘Let the Light In’ was decided just after Christmas; we thought it an uplifting name for a spring show and now, of course, it has taken on a whole new meaning. Our artists painted to this brief, inspired by the clear and bright light we are so blessed with in West Cornwall, and have captured something special in this work, either using light and shade, or colour and form, to symbolise hope and better times ahead.This show also introduces two new artists to the gallery, Sharon Reeves and Lizzie Black.

The Summerhouse Gallery

Market Place

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.
