The idea of The Secret Garden creates a realm of innocence and enchantment. Another worldly dimension to a place intertwined with wonder and growth.


The emotional attachment of the artist to the garden, through themes such as seclusion, spirituality and sexuality. It explores not only innocent pleasures but also the more painful thoughts and memories that gardens can evoke.


It also focuses on the continuing role of the garden as a metaphor for femininity. This has developed both through the classical tradition and the Christian identification of the enclosed garden, or ‘hortus conclusus’, with the Blessed Virgin.


There are many secret places within the garden that are yet to be explored, arched gateways closed or ajar to another mystery location within this mystical place.  Different plants, flowers and foliage undisturbed; the only disarray by the insects, small animals, bad weather or a small number of beings occupying the space momentarily.


Pepney Gallery is looking for artist's artworks to illustrate ideas around the above and more in regards to 'The Secret Garden'.

Submissions closed 

Pepney Gallery is looking for artist’s to submit artwork in any medium based closely to the theme -LOVE IN ART;  There are many kinds of love: sexual, parental, brotherly; and self-love are only some manifestations of the phenomenon.  They are motivated by different desires, needs and hopes.


Erich Fromm’s theory of love demands commitment, humility and courage, as well as persistence and hope in the face of inevitable conflicts and difficulties. Fromm was a neo-Freudian psychoanalyst who suggested a theory of personality based on two primary needs: the need for freedom and the need for belonging. He suggested that people develop certain personality styles or strategies in order to deal with the anxiety created by feelings of isolation.  But how is mature love to be developed and practised? How are the pitfalls of resentment, disappointment and indifference to be avoided, or, at least, constructively managed and overcome? Fromm declares that the art of loving is based on the practice of four essential elements: “care, responsibility, respect and knowledge” (Art, p.21). These evoke a radically different response than that more commonly associated with romantic or sentimental love.


Love is patient, love is kind: this is the visual embodiment of those great verses from Corinthians so often read at weddings.  Some of the greatest examples of Love in Art are by Rembrandt - The Jewish Bride (c1666), Rubens - The Honeysuckle Bower (c1609), Klimt - The Kiss (1908), Magritte -The Lovers (1928), Stanley Spencer - The Resurrection: Reunion (1945) and Frederic William Burton - Hellelil and Hildebrand, the Meeting on the Turret Stairs (1864) to name a few.
