Eric Ward paints in the tradition of the St Ives School of Painting, with its focus on both realism and impressionistic depiction of light and colour. Having worked as a fisherman, a Lifeboatman and as the harbor master of St Ives, Wards childhood love of art led him to paint the unique Cornish landscape and scenes of everyday life in which he was immersed.
Since his work began to gain widespread recognition in 1989, Ward has exhibited widely and has become one of Cornwall’s most collectible Artists.
School Prints Ltd was set up towards the end of the Second World War by Brenda Rawnsley and her husband Derek, who had the idea of bringing contemporary art to young children who would otherwise not have had the opportunity to see artwork, by producing lithographs to be sold directly to Schools. A number of the most important Artists of the day were commissioned to create work for the scheme.
A number of these original lithographs was discovered, in mint condition, a full sixty years after they were editioned, and have become collectible items of both artistic and historical interest.
Own Art is an Arts Council supported scheme that allows you to purchase an artwork by spreading the cost interest free over 10 monthly payments, helping you to take home the Art you love whilst supporting contemporary Artists. We are thrilled to be able to offer this scheme to customers in our gallery and our website.
Churchgate Gallery is nestled in the picturesque Exmoor village of Porlock, a place which has been an inspiration for many artists, poets, writers and photographers.
We exhibit a wide range of work in a variety of mediums by both local and nationally acclaimed artists, as well as sculpture, jewellery, ceramics, cards and books.
