Gallery

Visitors are welcome to explore a range of contemporary art for sale around the house, including two dedicated galleries on the ground and first floor. In 2019 we are hosting six exhibitions, each running for two months.

The preview evenings are open to everyone on the following dates from 6-8pm:

  • July 31st - Chris Witchall & Rebecca Harvey & Christine Calow
  • Oct 2nd - 12 Printmakers & Ruth Beloe
  • Dec 4th - Anthony Day & Richard Neal


Current Exhibition until September 29th

The Lower Gallery - Chris Witchall

Christopher Witchall is a realist artist whose subjects include Landscape, Seascapes and Urban Landscape. His paintings are inspired by a passion for the painting process and a fascination with the photographic image, combining traditional painting techniques with the realism and cool detachment of photography.

Recently, he has been working on small scale paintings, creating a greater intimacy between the work and viewer.

The Upper Gallery - Rebecca Harvey

Pots for Flowers, a collection of ceramic vessels.

The shapes and colours are inspired by Ikebana, the art of Japanese flower arranging; the beauty of nature in Rebecca’s garden; the wooded valley; the Cornish hedgerows.

The Sitting Room - Christine Calow

Richly coloured and textured silkscreen prints and paper collages; "The process of silkscreen printing gives me the freedom to experiment with vibrant colour combinations and textures. I am fascinated by the ways in which colour can be used to define pictorial depth, to create mood and evoke emotion."
