Welcome to Rye Art Gallery

The Gallery is home to an inspiring display of regularly changing contemporary art and craft, a fine Permanent Collection of national importance and a full programme of supporting talks, workshops and community activities.

We are housed in two listed heritage buildings joined together by an award-winning glass link and are an independent Trust dating from 1957.  The Gallery is a registered charity.

There is now a strong bias in Mark's work towards painting, both on canvas and paper. Mark has an assured way of handling paint, and a mature confidence in his subject matter. His print making activity nowadays is centred on making small suites of unique mono-prints.

I work mainly in Mono print, a printmaking technique that is painterly whereby the image is built up in layers of ink on acetate sheets, each one printed on top of the last until I feel that the image is completed. I aim to capture light, atmosphere and mood in my sea/people/animal and landscapes.
