The Promenade -
Kingsbridge - Devon- TQ7 1JD
tel: 01548 854708
Our gallery is available for hire, and applications are now invited for exhibitions in 2018.
The next open art exhibition at Harbour House in Kingsbridge is Self Portrait.
Narcissistic ‘selfie’ photos are often great fun. For this open art exhibition your self-portraits might also be humorous, sad or mysterious. We are challenging you to reflect a little more deeply than the quick-snap ’selfie’, to dare to reveal something of who you are.
See our website for more information about this opportunity to exhibit in October:
The deadline for applications is Monday 9 October at 9 am
The exhibition runs from Wednesday 18 October - Saturday 4 November 2017
Tim Fenton-Jones – Self Portrait
19 September – 1 October 2017
Annual exhibition of printmaking by artists from the Salcombe print workshop.
The exhibition includes collaborative works as well as a wide range of prints by individuals.
Over the last year members of Pressgang have developed a relationship with an Antipodean group of printmakers, also called Pressgang, and based in Sydney.
This collaboration involves an exchange of prints which will be displayed during the Harbour House show. A theme of ‘body parts’ formed the starting point for the Salcombe-based Pressgang’s prints, which members are also binding into a book to send to Australia.

We are four artists working in the South Hams, bringing together our individual visions and skills to explore Life and Landscape for this exhibition. Frank Wotton utilises drawing, etching, printmaking and paint to reflect his observations and engagement with the world around him. Working from the human figure, Clare Pumfrey uses markmaking in graphite, charcoal, ink and paint to describe the body and its potential to be seen and felt as landscape. Kath Pelforth’s mixed media work focuses on the interrelationship between the human figure and its environment. Janey Hunt has recently returned to drawing and painting after a career in socially engaged art practice. Her work explores markmaking in life, still life and landscape. Together our exhibition offers an exploration of media and diverse approaches united by a common interest in life and landscape.
18 October – 4 November (closed Sundays)
Open art exhibition featuring a wide range of responses to the theme. Local artists were challenged to reflect a little more deeply than the quick snap selfie, to dare to reveal something of who they are.
Harbour House organises two open art exhibitions each year. In the spring of 2018 the theme is The Energy of Plants, and in October, Autumnal Changes. Full details of entry can be found at www.harbourhouse.org.uk
11 – 19 November (10 am - 5 pm daily, except Sundays 10.30 am - 2.30 pm)
Paintings, mixed media and installation by Kamini Gupta
Opening View: Saturday 11 November, 10 am - 5 pm
"My work is a journey through ever changing inner and outer landscapes. I work intuitively, exploring the creative impulse as it arises in the moment through spontaneous expression. Creating this way makes me feel alive. Standing on the edge of not knowing is an ongoing journey to stay open, spontaneous and willing to be surprised. This approach honours the innate wisdom of the body and the transformative power of deep listening that allows the intuitive guidance of the Soul to find expression.”
21 November – 3 December
Landscape and marine paintings in watercolour and oils by Nick Bremer, and contemporary collages, prints, portraits and concept subjects by Patrick Bremer
Opening View: Tuesday 21 November, 6 pm
Drinks with the artists: Sunday 26 November, 12 noon
“It would seem that in my work I have always emphasised the importance of drawing and draughtsmanship.”
Nick Bremer reflects that his paintings tend to speak for themselves, being largely representational interpretations of landscape and marine themes. He shows here with his youngest son, Patrick, who is forging a successful, internationally recognised career in Fine Art in Berlin.
Patrick lives in Berlin, where he stocks up on old tattered books and magazines each weekend from the local market to use as his palette. He aims to approach his collages as paintings, using blocks of paper as loaded brush marks and inspired by the impasto mark-making of Freud and Bacon. Each piece begins with a rough plan before taking its own direction, and each is a reaction to the last. For Patrick, collage as a medium encourages the playful use of chance elements, sucking in text, stories and imagery from an array of different sources to create a narrative on the canvas.
