Echoes of Summer - An Exhibition By Camilla Perkins

THE REGENCY TOWNHOUSE, HOVE

13th to 17th August 2022

This summer, Lewes-based artist and illustrator Camilla Perkins will transform The Regency Townhouse, Hove, into a world of her own for her first solo show, Echoes of Summer.

The show is an ode to the feelings of hope, excitement, and nostalgia that summer brings. Camilla invites the viewer to “conjure the smell of freshly cut flowers from the garden, the feeling of running through the undergrowth as a child, the smell of hot earth - to step into a world where anything seems possible”. This immersive show will be set to the backdrop of the spectacular crumbling paint layers and historical flourishes that the Regency townhouse offers, with the view of the Brighton coastline and the smell of sea air.

Open Saturday 13th - Wednesday 17th August. The Regency Town House, 13 Brunswick Square, Hove, BN3 1EH.

Camilla's Work

Camilla Perkins is an artist and illustrator who lives in Lewes, East Sussex. She has developed a very distinctive style, a riot of colour and expressive mark-making, which is joyous to its very core. Her depictions of gardens, flowers, and seascapes are inspired by her childhood experiences and local surroundings around Brighton and Hove, where the exhibition takes place.

Camilla graduated from The University of Westminster in 2012 and has since worked on commercial projects with clients such as Google, Coca Cola, and The Guardian as well as continuing to work on her fine art drawings, paintings, and prints.

“Growing up in Brighton I spent my childhood visiting these beautiful regency buildings and after visiting the Regency Town House I couldn’t think of another venue that would complement my work more. I wanted the viewer to be able to experience my pieces in a more eccentric setting than a modern gallery space.” - Camilla Perkins
