Private View: Monday26 June, 7-9pm

The ever-popular Summer Show is returning to the Atkinson Gallery with the Private View being held on Monday 26 June 7 – 9pm, everyone is welcome to attend. This exhibition always proves to be a well-attended and highly talked about event and we look forward to welcoming back some previous entrants as well as new ones. 

Last year we capped the sale price of entries at £500 to enable more artists’ sales and make the artwork more affordable. This year we will be keeping this upper price limit and again Millfield will purchase a number of works for the schools permanent collection.

This exhibition has been expanding its boundaries over the last 2 years and we are enthralled to see so many entries making their way to the Atkinson Gallery from near and far.

We are also excited to be exhibiting work from Elmhurst Junior School pupils in the gallery foyer throughout the duration of The Summer Show. Millfield Art Department and Lower sixth BTEC pupils have been working collaboratively on a creative project with Elmhurst pupils since May. The pupils have been exploring the local landscape, its importance and significance to residents and drawing inspiration from local places and wildlife to inform their creative practice. All are welcome to the Private View to partake in their success and creativity.

If you have not entered The Summer Show previously and would like to receive information about entering, please email to state your interest and the best means of contacting you. Previous entrants will be contacted automatically.
