The Rye Gallery is located in the heart of Rye. Full of character it has been beautifully extended and full of interesting paintings, ceramics, sculpture. I found artists I had never heard of before and many of them live or lived on the Marsh or in Rye. The staff were very friendly, informative about the artists, and helpful. I would... More

Full of contemporary art from a wide range of genres, this art gallery is a real gem within the beautiful town of Rye. Situated on the main street this is somewhere all should visit, celebrating and showcasing artist talent from around the country, including on my visit an exhibition of GCSE work by local children. As well as the contemporary... More

Have walked past here several times, mistakenly thinking it was some sort of avant garde upmarket private gallery. Don't make the same mistake as me! It is a wonderful old building tastefully converted with amazing light inside. As well as local professional artists the GCSE work from a local school was on display. Good stuff. Worth a trip inside every... More

I visited the gallery at 16.30 and saw an expensive painting I wanted to purchase. It evoked many memories of when I lived in the area 27 years ago. I met my husband and he was anxious to see my find. We raced back to the gallery at exactly 5pm to be told by a very rude woman that the... More

I like looking at art and i like these places as well, because they cost not a penny. Lots of original works on view over three floors. Some I particulary liked but my bank account said no. Something here for all art lovers to admire i would have thought.

We always visit this gallery when in the area. Usually there is something for everyone over the three floors of space and well worth a visit but beware! I don't know where the friendly and helpful staff referred to in other reviews were on the day we visited but the one woman behind the till was extremely frosty. Busy chatting... More

We throughly enjoyed the spacious, tastefully arranged gallery in Rye High Road. Richard Adams humorous pastels brought smiles and giggles, especially the airborne mermaids and garden hedge trimmers.The houses and buildings portrayed were entertaining too.

This gallery spreads over three floors and shows work by many local artists in a wide range of media and at affordable prices. The ceramics, glass and jewellery are displayed temptingly and the walls are hung with a lot of different picture styles, some abstract, some 3-D, some local views. You can browse undisturbed but knowledgeable staff are there to... More

My husband is an artist, so we made a bee line for this gallery. It is beautifully laid out with so much to see. Pottery, jewellery, cards, paintings etc. The lady in charge made us welcome and we chatted for some time. We bought a couple of things and would definitely return.
