Creative Blog

We love writing about anything and your comments gives us motivation and new ideas.

Exhibition Lockdown

Let us examine the situation through art. This period has to be the most thought provoking in human history.

As mask wearing obedience grips the world, what do we say as artists and thinkers? Could this be the most enlightening exhibition ever….

Paint/Print a Mug

It is easy to be an Artist and turn your creative ideas into lasting gifts or souvenirs with our paint a mug facility. Paint your design, add photos if you wish then we scan your artwork turning it into a digital transfer which is dye sublimated onto the mug for a permanent dishwasher safe finished piece
that you can treasure forever, or give as a unique gift.

Now Open

We have made some exciting new changes to the layout of our studio gallery and have included a small tea room where you can enjoy a beverage and a choice of cake with the best view of Ulverston overlooking the Hoad monument.

We wish to start things off again with a new exhibition of artists work during and featuring their experiences of the ‘lockdown’. If you would like to contribute a piece then please get in touch. We have not set a final date for the exhibition as of yet but it will be at some time in July. Update, the exhibition will begin as we open on Monday. It will be a rolling exhibition until the end of August.

Keep checking back here as things are changing rapidly and new information will be posted.

We look forward to seeing all of our friends and supporters soon. Thank you all.

Evening classes at UAH

Ulverston Art House is running evening workshops for artists looking to improve their artistic skills. From novice to expert you can join our growing community to advance and expand in our vibrant art space.

Mixed Media

Mixed media Monday’s, from 7pm our resident artists Lynne Warburton and Adrian Gough take students on an enjoyable voyage of discovery, exploring many mediums and avenues. This course is proving to be extremely popular and runs in 10 week terms. email adrian@ulverstonarthouse.com

Life Drawing

In April there will be the opportunity to join a life drawing group on Thursday evenings. Life drawings offer a unique chance of developing your drawing skills like no other method can. Those who do attend regular life drawing sessions tend to be the ones who become far more skilled as artists as they hone their visual observations into 2D draft. email david@ulverstonarthouse.com

Christmas festival of light

Working with light for our winter solstice celebrations.

Wendy Steel Exhibition

We are currently running an exhibition for a local artist Wendy Steel. Who’s inspiration is ‘feelings’, she starts with a feeling and then paints with instinctual freedom. The resulting art work is of an expressionist abstract with familiarity in some detail and a pleasing colour palet.

11:11 Ulverston Art House remembers.

A dedicated exhibition to remember those who sacrificed everything to provide liberty.

A group of diverse artists and photographers have assembled some thought provoking images on the theme of war and remembering the cost of conflict.

It is a time to embrace the significance of history as we look to the future.

Let us not march blindly into the night.

November 11th

Artist & Young Artist of the month October

This month we are featuring the works of Teresa Teran and Aidan Fort.

Opening times are Thursday to Saturday 10am – 5pm.

We also have a selection of ceramics from Tarnside Ceramics and contributions from Sheila Gayle and Susan Bently.

Artist of the month

Ulverston Art House is casting the net for local talent.

Our panel will appraise works for approval and then if selected we go to work on all of the elements involved in putting together an exhibit where you will be the star attraction.

We provide curation with the finest attention to detail backed up with a media campaign across a wide spectrum of platforms to draw attention.

All works must be of high quality and suitably framed. If there are any rejection issues we will advise on possible solutions for the future.

We are a very friendly and approachable team committed to promoting arts locally.

Get in touch, there is really nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Young Artist of the month

In tandem to the artist of the month we are also running a search for young artists up to the age of 18. There is no minimum age and we hope to be inspired by young people who are showing signs of exceptional talent.

The future will be shaped by new visionaries who pick up a brush and begin painting, drawing, thinking and creating with hearts content.

This week’s Exhibition

All About Us.

We return this week to our own works as four resident artists, while also show casing local artists.

Our local artists for this exhibition includes Susan Bentley an amazing talent who captures wildlife with a charm and paints with a graceful elegance which is an absolute delight to see. Her works alone are well worth a visit.

Sheila Gayle is exhibiting her new series of paintings titled ‘Northern Nan’s’, which portray the intrinsic characteristics of three familiar ladies.
