Atkinson Gallery Summer Show
Have a sneak peek at some of the artworks made by West Country artists on show – and for sale – in this year's exhibition
Every year the nationally recognised Atkinson Gallery offers emerging and established artists from the South West and beyond the chance to exhibit – and sell – their work in their Summer Show.
Hundreds of artists submit their paintings, ceramics, print, photos, drawings, sculptures and more, to the gallery but only a handful are chosen for exhibit.
The gallery’s Helen Allcock sent over a few of the artworks which made the final cut. Which one’s your favourite?

A delicate watercolour evokes the summer but which plant or flower is it?
