School House Gallery

A contemporary art gallery in beautiful gardens with a fully licensed pop-up bar and cafe


Exhibition & Residency – until 28 Jan 2018

Tue – Sun 11am-4.30pm

It’s getting wintry, so this week we’ve turned up the heating, mulled the wine, cooked mince pies and hot, nourishing soup (lentil, lemon and thyme, with chunky homemade bread), all so you can cosy up and enjoy Jake Attree’s wonderful paintings.

Cardamom & Dill

Cardamom and Dill’s culinary residency is in Greece this week with ‘A Walk on Paxos’ featuring the following dishes:

  • A warming bowl of Greek gigantes (beans with tomatoes, fennel and fresh dill)
  • Sumptuous roasted red peppers stuffed with arborio rice, sweet raisins and almonds
  • Volós lentil salad with a garlic & lemon dressing
  • Dimitri’s horiatiki (a classic Greek salad with feta, tomatoes & olives)
  • A gently spiced sweet potato hummus

Thu – Sat  12.30 – 2.00pm, to eat in or take away.

We are currently stocking the beautiful catalogue of ‘Home From Home’, an exhibition of international ceramicists currently on show at Contemporary Applied Arts in London. The CAA invited Robert to write a catalogue essay for Home From Home, which appears alongside an essay by David Whiting and profiles of each of the twenty-five participating artists. Catalogues will hopefully be available to purchase in the gallery shortly. Catalogues are £10.

One thought on “School House Gallery”

  1. Such a relaxing place. A pot of Earl Grey, a piece of home-made cake, some interesting art works and Dave Brubeck in the background – I’ll definitely return!
