We always try to stop at the Rye Art Gallery when in the area. Last time in the spring we were there on a Sunday, when the opening hours on the door clearly weren't the real story, so we had to go away disappointed. This...More

This is a lovely little gallery, one that entices you in with its window displays and keeps you interested once inside. It looks like it is well organised and has an interest in supporting different artists. Definitely worth a browse.

This gallery has a real mix of art (and some crafts) to view and buy. It has grown in size with much more to offer. We all enjoy looking round - a great place to by gifts too.

Something for everyone in this gallery - paintings, sculptures, jewellery, textiles, ceramics etc. On the whole the quality of work is very high and originality shines forth. Good to see local artists represented. Well worth a visit to admire or purchase the work on offer.

This is the most substantial art gallery in Rye. Spread over three floors it functions as a selling gallery for local artists as well as a museum exhibition space. It's an architectural hotch-pitch. Downstairs it's all ultra-modern made of concrete and glass; upstairs rooms feel...More
