For over fourteen years Emma Carter Bromfield has been a regular exhibitor at Harbour House with her fresh, atmospheric paintings of coasts and seascapes. She describes her style as ‘contemporary impressionism’, exploring seascapes and landscapes in all seasons in increasingly abstracted style. Burgh Island is an enduring theme in her work.
“My practice is based on an expression of a place rather than a realistic interpretation. I like to allow the atmosphere and free-spirited essence of a place to feed our souls, and I mainly paint from my head, allowing this to freely flow out.”
Throughout Emma’s exhibition she will be painting in the gallery and will be happy to chat about her work at any time.
Open 10 am – 5 pm daily

“The first steps of my ongoing journey of photography were taken as a child in a creative yet practical family. I was able to observe and learn from skilled relatives as I ambled along and milestones manifested themselves, mostly minor but each contributing to the fascinating journey: painting with light.
For this exhibition I will include ‘pictures of my life’, compositions that I know I can never better, and images that have stayed with me as landmark friends, reprocessed possibly from the original raw files, but reprinted to the standard that the last few years’ knowledge of printing techniques has enabled me to achieve. As ever, the new work will reflect observations from the macro to panoramic worlds, from locations near and far, but displaying my unique way of seeing things and encouraging viewers to formulate their own observations on the images’ stories.”
In recent years Maureen has tutored, mentored and given lectures for photographic clubs. She has photographed concerts and recordings of musical events in Yorkshire, Liege, Brittany and Seoul while her photography graces CDs by musicians in Brittany and Portugal. Her botanical recording work for The Garden House at Buckland Monachorum has been published in a book and is used in publicity, while her ongoing record-keeping project at Fast Rabbit Farm Gardens, Dartmouth, is used for horticultural lectures by the owner.
Paintings and sculptures by Philip Osborne
Tuesday 4 - Sunday 16 September 2018
10 am - 5 pm
Opening view: Tuesday 4 September, 6 - 8 pm
An exhibition of paintings and sculptures by Philip Osborne: a meditation on the sea and the experience of watching the sea. The central theme of this show is humanity and the way in which art acts as a focus for thought, a focus that is generated by behaviour, actions and being.
“There is a special sort of awareness that comes with careful and concentrated viewing of nature; it is a meditation on a wave that matters, not careful reflection nor analysis - that is a later attribute of thought. The sculptures are works carried out as an affirmation of the beneficial effect of being near the sea shore. A meditative device, the sea allows for free thinking as a discourse and dialogue with oneself and water. This work is an appreciation without words of the natural phenomenon that results from the breathing in and out of internal/external perspectives in mimesis of the flow of tides. This is their story.”
Tuesday 18 - Sunday 23 September 2018
“I have no particular interest in either abstraction of figuration for its own sake, and often utilise both facets in one piece. The work for this show has been divided into three sections: the view within, the view without and the view beyond. I have consciously employed three completely different processes in order to demonstrate what I consider to be the most appropriate method for each.
I consider there to be a very close association between visual art and music and I try to give the work some of the autonomy enjoyed by music, hence the title Canto.
Thus the interiors are clean, crisp and simple, the exteriors utilise a textural process and the more cosmic work a freedom beyond the norm.”
