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.

An exhibition of paintings in oils, acrylics and watercolours, and works in inks, photography, pastels and metals by the HockingHill collective of West Country artists.
We want to showcase the joys of life. In these gloomy days we feel it is important to remind everyone that our world is truly wonderful!
Opening View: Friday 20 April, 6 - 8 pm
Meet the Artists: Saturday 21 April, 10 am - 5 pm
Liane Hocking’s semi abstract acrylic paintings describe seasonal views of Devon and Cornwall, and she celebrates the human form through life drawing and painting. Using found objects she creates small sculptural pieces to show how life can be enriched by what is already around us.
Jo Beer: There is no such thing as an ordinary person. Figurative work gives me the opportunity to focus on wonderful details, styles, fabrics, skin, folds and creases: the whole package.
Inspired by the freedom of movement she feels in water, Jane Hagan MSDC makes unconscious marks without design or intent, allowing forms to emerge before applying colour after a period of contemplation.
Susie Boyland’s work celebrates nature at its most joyous while Kenny Grogan shows a collection of acrylic paintings of seascapes and surfers.
Lucy Miller presents a series of photographs exploring images of winter and Niki Hill shows a series of panels in inks, watercolours, dyes and metals exploring the environment.
Steve Beer’s conceptual works in collage and paint have emerged from his background as a film-maker and graphic designer.
27 April – 3 May
Contemporary Quilters West
Meet the Artists at the Opening View: Friday 27 April, 11 am - 2 pm
A treasured First Communion dress, transformed with stitch, textile fragments, dyed in seawater on an uninhabited Scottish island, and plastic marine debris stitched into a textile - just 3 of the exciting new contemporary quilts on show in this exhibition by the dynamic Contemporary Quilters West. Textiles used in unusual and innovative ways make for a provocative show.
Many of the artists are inspired by the environment and the local landscape, and each tells their own unfolding story.
CQ West is a group of 25 individuals who came together five years ago, with the aim of supporting and encouraging each other in our individual working practice. We have a wide variety of artistic skills in contemporary quilting and textiles but have a common ground in that stitch forms a part of our work.

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.
