In 2012 SCA opened The ArtHouse on Eastbank St. in Southport. This has provided a regular showcase for work via frequent exhibitions and opportunities for the community to engage our events.


The establishment of a permanent space for SCA has been invaluable for local artists.  The provision of an exhibition space and workshop/studios has helped all of Southport’s creative communities develop and grow.

Exhibitions at ArtHouse

We host regular Exhibitions at ArtHouse, with a wide variety of different Artists looking to show case their work in either solo shows, or as part of our various group shows.   They are sometimes themed and occasionally may be restricted to certain art media.


Open exhibitions welcome entries from all local artists.  Exhibitions are publicised and most have a 'preview' evening.  If you wish to take part in an Open Exhibition please contact us -


The whole gallery space at ArtHouse can be hired by an artist/group. The gallery is available at a very competetive rate of £50 per week, with a 30% commission on sales.  Forms can be down loaded from GALLERY HIRE AGREEMENT


If you are interested in hiring the Gallery for an exhibition, either as a solo artist or as a collective, you should discuss your requirements with the Gallery Manager, Norrie-Beswick Calvert. You can arrange a meeting by email to -

'Colour and Collage' - Amanda Clark-Price

A solo exhibition by Mixed Media Artist, Amanda Clark-Price

"I am a mixed media artist, originally from Liverpool now living and working in
Burscough, Lancashire. This will be my very first solo exhibition-something that, during my time as a teacher was just an ambition. I had always produced artwork to support my teaching practice but now have the time to develop work for myself. Most of the work in this exhibition is abstract in nature. I wanted to explore layers, colours and mixing of media. My style of work ranges from abstract, semi-abstract and realism - often brightly coloured and layered with collage. I love to give new life to unwanted materials and objects and use reclaimed music manuscripts, discarded books, musical instruments and maps in my work. I use drawing, collage, print, acrylic, watercolour, papier mache, pencil and pen in my mixed media pieces and I also enjoy “just” pencil. I often use the treble clef symbol in my work either in collage form or as a motif. This for me symbolises my love of music. It has become my “signature".

I have exhibited my work in local exhibitions at SCA and The Atkinson in
Southport. Also, a selection of my work is available to buy from Lancashire
Makers in Churchtown and in the former Chapel Gallery in Ormskirk.


Some of my work is available as prints and Fine Art greeting cards. To view more please see my Instagram account amandaclarkprice

I am an art tutor at SCA and run drawing and mixed media workshops online
and in-person.

Commissions welcomed. I can be contacted on:"
