Immerse yourself in a Gallery dedicated to local and East Anglian paintings, ceramics, sculptures and jewellery.
The Maltings Gallery at Snape Maltings is a treasure box of wonderful finds from Suffolk and further afield. From the paintings of the celebrated Maggi Hambling CBE – created in her studio just a few miles away – to new work from up-and-coming printmakers based in local villages, there is something here for every budget, making The Maltings Gallery a wonderful place to shop for presents – or to treat yourself.
Open 10am–5.30pm • Sunday 10.30am–4.30pm • Pantry from 9.30am
We work continually to introduce new creative talents as well as showcasing nationally-collected local artists including Jelly Green, Jill Draper and Jason Gathorne-Hardy through residencies and a changing programme of exhibitions.
Reflecting British and local art
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. From ceramics to paintings, sculpture to jewellery – there is a sense of continuity and reflection of this timeless environment in our Gallery collections.
Artist of the Month
Lucy Redman, Potter & Plantswoman
For years Lucy has been interested in colour, form and texture applying all three to the gardens she designs. On closing The Lucy Redman Garden at Rushbrooke, near Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk in 2015 Lucy has immersed herself in other creative fields including Pin Art – using her knowledge of plant form to create intricate designs which caste stunning shadows when top lit.
Her love of stoneware is in her veins, her mother having made glazes for Robert Tarling of Kersey Pottery . As a teenager in the 80’s Lucy worked for Fred Bramham and Dorothy Gorst selling their pots when they took over Kersey Pottery, Suffolk. Having always collected stoneware she started to create them in 2015 and is really passionate about making pleasing tactile yet functional forms and combining these with sparkly glass capturing her love of colour. Little pots of joy to hold and behold!
