Gallery Events

Emotional Response Contrasts with Visual Essentials: A Joint Show by Nigel Sharman & Mel Cormack-Hicks. Marine House at Beer. Accessible online from the end of August, the show will be available to view in the gallery daily from 10am – 5.00pm. Marine House at Beer is excited to be showcasing the work of two highly respected semi-abstract painters – Mel Cormack-Hicks and Nigel Sharman. The joint show will present new artworks by two artists who in distinctly different ways have, in their contrasting but innovative artistic prowess, made themselves very popular and collectable. Though different in their emotional response and approach to visual representation, both artists are simultaneously inspired by colour, composition, and the vibrant landscapes of the South West.
