Welcoming new creative finds as well as showcasing firm favourites, the Gallery at Snape Maltings offers plenty for art-lovers to discover in 2016.
From the works of Suffolk’s celebrated Maggi Hambling to up-and-coming printmakers, there is something here for every budget, making the Gallery wonderful place to shop for presents – or to treat yourself. Above all, the sense of place that surrounds the Maltings unites all the work we show – the huge Suffolk skies, the whispering reeds, the wonderful beaches and the peaceful woodlands are all represented here in the tones, textures and subject matter of the Gallery collections.
We continually work on introducing new creative finds as well as showcasing nationally-collected local artists including Maggi Hambling CBE, Tessa Newcomb and Jason Gathorne-Hardy. Many of our most sought-after painters – including Sara Johnson, Emma Green, and Beth Andrew – live and work very locally and are inspired by the landscape on our doorstep.
As well as painting and sculpture, the collections include the work of local potters and woodturners, textile artists and even furniture maker Dylan Pym’s unique Suffolk chairs and stools. Our ‘Made in Britain’ jewellery collections include an extensive collection of Alex Monroe’s celebrated jewellery and Karen Risby’s wonderful ceramic pieces, designed to be worn by everyone, every day.
