I love some of their exhibitions. At present it's local school children and we have some very good budding artists for the future thank goodness. Local artists also exhibit here I like Richard Adams and Clare can't remember her other name. Back in the Summer they an artist who designed figures out of junk and if I had the money I would have bought about 3 of them

Excellent gallery with a good mixture of paintings and ceramics/crafts. A lot of the items are reasonably priced starting as low as £10 upwards. Exhibitions appear to change regularly and staff are helpful

A lovely space with a good selection of artworks for sale and on permanent display. A good light airy feel

My wife and I always pop in here when we go to Rye. It's one of our favourite galleries. The art here is always quirky and interesting and at the moment there is a small exhibition by David Crew a local artist who is just fantastic. There is lots to buy from a card for a few pounds to thousands for original pieces. We came out of there today with a ceramic raven head ! Very friendly staff too
Highly recommended

Lovely collection, staff so friendly and I couldn’t believe there was such a great gallery in a town so small. The lady behind counter recommended us the cafe opposite too which was great! Thankyou!

I wanted to write this to disagree strongly with the lady who gave this great gallery a bad review because they sell digital prints. I’ve just visited and thought it was a great and fun mix and so good to see paintings reproduced really well as prints that most could afford. I paint and am very well aware that my pictures cost more than most people who like them can warrant spending. I am happy to sell digital versions of the originals if I feel they are good enough to sign and number, they are not a money spinner as the reviewer implied. Good art prints are not cheap to have made, and the artist makes very little from a sale, but it’s a nice warm fuzzy feeling to have your work going into the world, especially in such a democratic way. I often buy digital prints myself, there seems to be some sort of snobbery going on here. When have we not bought prints of paintings we like? Just look in any town to see that this is a REALLY great and FUN gallery. Anyway - rant over. So go and buy a print.

Spread over several floors and not only full of interesting art but also a lovely building with sneaky views over Rye and the surrounding area. Make sure you get to the top floor where there is a special exhibition room
