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

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!

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
