Kit Johns and Kate Richardson: Of Time and Tide

Kit Johns and Kate Richardson: Of Time and Tide

6 to 20 October 2017

This October The Summerhouse Gallery is excited to showcase a celebration of land and sea, featuring the work of Kit Johns and Kate Richardson.Kit and Kates unique, and instantly recognisable styles capture nature both at its most serene, and its most tempestuous.Kit Johns has gained critical acclaim throughout the South West for his Ocean scenes sat against vintage maps. His sunny summer beaches, bursting with colour splashes depicting family holidays dotted with rainbow coloured parasols and windbreaks, beautifully contrast the inky blues of his stormy seas and fiery winter sunsets. Since moving studios earlier this year, his work has undertaken a fresh burst of inspiration and vigor and will only further brighten the path of this rising star.Kates gnarled, weather beaten trees are synonymous with the Cornish landscape, and set against a stormy sky or a sunny vista they become an object of beauty and intrigue. Her colourful rock faces, covered in mosses and flowers frame secretive roadways and paths in paintings filled with the promise of a journey. This latest evocative body of work will capture an etherial light upon the seasons change.Of Time and Tide will act as a reflection upon the changing seasons, as we transition from a summer of sunshine (and showers!) into the equally beautiful Cornish winter. We are thrilled here at The Summerhouse to showcase a collection of new work from two equally proficient and contrastingly striking artists.The show will open with a private view on October the 6th from 6-8pm, and will run on until the 20th. More information will be available on our website, www.summerhousegallery.co.uk.

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.
