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 -
