At the Tate Gallery

For a wonderful experience of inspiring fine art and beautifully crafted, hand-made and unique gifts, visit The Tate Gallery. ​

Surrounded by tall shade trees and lush gardens this informal and intimate space is one of Northumberland County’s surprising gems. Moments from the 401 and the charming town of Port Hope, it is a beautiful venue that showcases the work of a variety of emerging and established contemporary artists and artisans.

Pamela Tate

Pamela Tate’s eclectic acrylic paintings have strong colours, striking images and vary widely in subject matter and in size. She explores movement vs. stillness, light vs. shadow, excitement vs. calm. Her art invites the viewer to pause, reflect and smile.

She had solo exhibitions annually from 2003 to 2008 at The Human Bean in Cobourg and in 2007 at the Kent Farndale Gallery in Port Perry. Her paintings have been accepted into juried shows at the Art Gallery of Northumberland in Cobourg and the Russell Gallery in Kingston, as well as at the Visual Arts Centre in Bowmanville where she has won awards two out of the last three years. She has been a guest artist at Gallery 121 in Belleville and is a past member of the Journey Through the Arts Gallery in Port Hope.

An Arts Guide, recently published by Northumberland County, not only lists Pamela in its pages, but hers was the painting chosen to be featured on the front cover.

A resident of Northumberland Hills, just north of Port Hope and 60km east of Toronto, Pamela’s paintings can be found in private collections across Canada as well as in the United States, Mexico and Switzerland.
