SUMMER IS COMING
THE SUMMER EXHIBITION
1ST JULY – 2ND SEPTEMBER 2023
The Whitehouse Gallery will welcome the summer in with an exciting selection of work, from an array of fine artists and makers.
The ‘Summer Exhibition’ opens for the preview on Saturday 1st July. Doors open 11am – 5pm. All are welcome to attend.
Gordon Wilson is one of Scotland’s most sought after contemporary painters. His subject matter ranges from quirky portraiture to emotive land and seascapes, with a deep love of the West Coast of Scotland (and the beloved Belted Galloway). Gordon will be joined by Rosanne Barr, another celebrated and collectable contemporary Scottish artist who with a reputation for capturing the mood, emotion and colours of a place in her Scottish landscapes. Scottish landscapes will also be on show by regular exhibitors Margaret Evans and Morag Lloyds.
Helen Tabor is another returning and much loved artist of the gallery. With a love of landscape, seascape, still life or figurative, her focus is on creating a mood in her paintings, usually through her application of colour and brushstrokes. (top image)
A love of the figure is shared by new artist to the gallery Gill Walton SSA, and returning artists Jackie Henderson and Garry Harper. Each artist has carved out their own very distinctive style, and have built up a very strong following for their work.
Summer will be celebrated in this exhibition with seascapes, swimmers and figures on the beach by Anne Skinner, Lynn Howarth and new artist to the gallery, Nicola Wakeling. Nicola is a very established fine art landscape painter, with a deep connection to the outer Hebrides. Her luminous oil paintings capture light and shade beautifully and we are delighted to have some in this exhibition.
Having recently been awarded membership of the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours, Kate Bentley RI will be delivering a collection of her paintings, this time with a nautical theme.
Louise Body also returns with some of her abstract, design focused landscapes.
Finally, linocuts will be on offer from Babs Pease and Deb Wing. Babs is new to the gallery, and finds much of her inspiration in the beautiful landscape of the Ochils, and the rich variety of flora and fauna within it. Deb Wing finds her inspiration from the dramatic landscapes of Argyll and the West of Scotland.
Alongside paintings and prints, we have new collections of Mosaics by Amanda Anderson and Morag Archer; Ceramics by Carolyn Tripp, David Pantling, Liz Stott, Sandie Cosens, Sarah Lawson, Sarah Saunders and Steve Smith; Glass by Elizabeth Welch and Steve Robinson; Jewellery by Hannah Duncan; Driftwood figures by Lynn Muir; Furniture by Stephen Finch and much more.
The gallery will go live on Thursday 29th June. If, in the meantime you are interested in any of the artists or makers, please contact us to request a preview of images.Back to Blog
