Forthcoming artist's exhibitions are listed below. (Please notify us of your next exhibition).
The Promenade -
Kingsbridge - Devon- TQ7 1JD
tel: 01548 854708
Our gallery is available for hire, and applications are now invited for exhibitions in 2018.
Open art exhibition:
We’re asking artists to look at the world of plants: roots, stems, flowers, fruits and seeds. The creative possibilities are endless, and art work can be in any medium. Painting and photography are always popular choices, but we’re also hoping that sculptors will respond imaginatively to the theme.
Artists can enter up to four pieces of work, which will be assessed by a small panel of invited artists. Works may be in any medium, and must be original, not reproductions. We also ask artists to submit a short written statement or perhaps a page of illustrations to explain the works.
Entry opens on 15 February, and artists have a month to submit applications before the deadline of 9 am on Thursday 15 March. Artwork is then handed in at the gallery on the morning of Tuesday 20 March.
This opportunity is ideally suited to local artists as gallery stewarding for up to three half days (not Sundays) is a requirement of entry.
Full details of entry can be found at: http://www.harbourhouse.org.uk/g18-teop.shtml
The exhibition runs over the busy Easter holiday period from 28 March – 14 April 2018.
Cherry Lyons – Hedgerow Gorse 3 (drypoint)
20 – 25 February 2018
An exhibition of mixed media paintings by Bethany Holmes exploring colour and light in the British landscape. Exploring new horizons and exposing herself to the elements she uses a combination of acrylic paint, ink and oil pastel to convey a sense of distance.
“My paintings are created by a process of building up and scraping back layers of paint and mixed media, exploring the balance of colour on a blank canvas. I look to impressionism as a huge source of inspiration, and feel my artwork has roots in abstract expressionism. The texture within my art takes form from studying the way the British landscape changes and develops.”
Bethany Holmes, painting

The exhibition celebrates the work produced this year by A Level students in art, textiles and photography. Each of the 70 students has selected a piece of work for the exhibition which reflects a personal response to one of the following themes:
Year 12: ‘Expressive Figures & Faces’ in art and, in photography, ‘Structures’ or ‘Portraits’.
Year 13: students selected a personal investigation theme from a variety of titles including ‘Identity’, ‘Growth & Decay’, ‘Creative Use of Light’ and ‘Colour’.
The range of scale, medium and content reflects the vibrant creativity of these young artists.

Devon Artist Network (DAN) is a membership organisation set up to promote the visual arts and to create opportunities, events and exhibitions for artists and makers in Devon. A non-profit making organisation established in 2004, DAN promotes, champions and supports the work of Devon-based artists and makers, and Devon Open Studios has become an established annual September event.
The network is artist-led, which is reflected in the composition of the Board of Directors. Membership is open to all artists who live and work in Devon.
An exhibition of pastel paintings with Keith Stott and his students
Tuesday 13 - Sunday 18 March 2018
10 am - 5 pm daily, except Sunday 10 am - 3 pm
Late opening with drinks until 6 pm on Tuesday 13 March
For the past ten years Keith Stott has taught pastel painting at Harbour House, sharing his skills and knowledge as an artist. His enthusiasm to teach in a relaxed and informal environment has helped many a student, from complete beginners to the more experienced, on a journey of discovery.
With a deep understanding of colour and technique he encourages his students to challenge themselves to create accomplished work with, as one points out, “skills some didn’t even know they possessed”.
As a testament to his teaching skill, there are students who now exhibit at art galleries and in exhibitions with great success.
As part of this exhibition, paintings by past and present students will be displayed alongside Keith’s, offering a variety of subject and approach.
Each day there will be at least one student painting in the art gallery, with an array of pastels, papers, and tools on display to help explain the mysteries of pastel painting. On Friday 16 March Keith will be painting in the gallery and will be happy to discuss techniques at any time.
