It’s that time of year – firming up the 2017 exhibition schedule.
My diary is already looking full!
Please put these dates in your diary. Once the days and times when I will be stewarding are decided, I will post news on my Facebook page and here also. It’s your chance to ‘meet the artist’!
Salcombe Art Club Summer exhibition
Thursday 13 April – Saturday 30 September 2017
As a member of Salcombe Art Club, I’ve exhibited in the club’s Summer Exhibition for many years now.
I usually submit 5 paintings, and the rule is that none of these original works of art can have been hung in the Loft Gallery in the previous three years. This encourages artists to keep on painting!
Handing in day is 1 April – five weeks away and I am hard at work.
The Loft Studio is open 7 days a week from 11am until 5pm. Admission is free.
Consuming Passions Exhibition
Tuesday 6 June – Sunday 18 June 2017
This is a new one for me. It’s organised by SHAF (South Hams Arts Forum). I’ve been a member of that organisation for several years and have enjoyed the events they organise for local artists: talks and social events.
This will be my first joint venture with them, in an exhibition!
It’s at Harbour House. Kingsbridge – a wonderful gallery space – and I’ll be exhibiting probably 7 paintings there.
Doors will be open from 10am – 5pm and admission is free.
One-man exhibition in the Redfern Health Centre
Thursday 29 June – Thursday 27 July 2017
Full members of Salcombe Art Club are asked to display their work for one month – so that those visiting the Redfern have something to admire while waiting to see the doctor.
It’s an honour to be on the team again and to know that my paintings may provide some cheer to those having health issues.
On one occasion, a gentleman recognised Burgh Island in one of my paintings as the venue for his marriage many years previous. He purchased it as a surprise for his wife. How romantic!
The Redfern benefits from all sales; – a percentage of the purchase price is donated to their funds.
One-man exhibition in the Little Studio in the Loft Gallery
Sunday 13 August – Saturday 26 August 2017
Salcombe Art Club invite members, including associate members, to take one or two weeks in the Little Studio, to display as many of their paintings as they can hang in the space.
More recent paintings that didn’t sell last year can be hung so they usually get another airing.
I’ll be stewarding all day both Sundays, so that’s a good time to pop in and chat, if you want to ‘meet the artist’.
The photo is me – last year.
SHAF Arts Trail
Saturday 14 October – Sunday 29 October
The South Hams Art Forum (SHAF) usually have a one-week Arts Trail. This year, it’s extended to two weeks so that those on holiday in the area might have more opportunity to attend during the school’s half-term holiday.
Viewings at Beacon House Gallery are usually by appointment but, for the period of the SHAF Arts Trail, we will welcome visitors 11am-3pm Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, and 10am-5pm on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. (Closed on a Tuesday)
Beacon House Gallery
Private viewings 2017
I usually hold a private preview evening ahead of the start of the season, but the gallery is being refurbished and works will not be completed before Easter.
Instead, there will be an event to celebrate the re-opening of Beacon House Gallery – whenever that happens!
If you would like to be advised about the date of this event and to receive an invitation, please contact me.
