In the section below, we feature some of the artists whose work is currently on show, usually supported by the Artist's Statement on their vision and how they work. See the 'Exhibitions and Events' page for our mixed and named shows as well.
Norman Ackroyd RA is one of the country's most celebrated landscape artists. Born in Leeds in 1938, he attended the Royal College of Art in the 1960s.
I love immersing myself in the subject. It is at turns exhilarating and frustrating working with the changing light, tides and weather. Time is short as shadows turn and lengthen, tides advance or recede, or a setting sun rapidly diminishes.
Each painting expresses a unique time and place, a result of my direct experience of the variety of natural and manmade landscapes within Sussex.
I have been showing and selling my work in numerous galleries since 1998 and have had two solo shows.
