Wedgies - Painted People and very bright!

Wedgies are hand-crafted and hand-painted doorstops. They are made as part of an incentive scheme in Sri Lanka aimed at the empowerment of men and women living in rural areas of the country.

The processes involved in making the Wedgies elevates the standard of living for all involved.

These are on our Sales desk and would be very good at giving colour to your table, or standing in massed ranks in jam jars, as well as wedging your doors open. Present material for adults or children!

Rye College Art

Here are 3 members of Rye College Art Department relaxing at the Preview after they have hung the stunning exhibition of their students' work.

They are Head of Department, Lauren Loveless, with Photography tutor Andrew Gilpin and Art Technician Stuart Chester.

Many of the students hope to go on to further qualifications and careers in the visual arts.

Rye Festival of the Sea

All sorts of watery and fishy things happen in Rye during the July 'Festival of the Sea'.

This white galleon and the green fish are actually on our front window. They are drawn by Evie, one of our creative Gallery Assistants, who is a dab hand at design (geddit?!)

Spot the open door behind so you can come in and find things to catch...

RBSA Members and Friends came down from Birmingham to see us

We were so pleased and impressed at the number of Members and Friends of the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists who travelled down from Birmingham to visit us during the opening weekend of their show at the Gallery.

We much enjoyed their kindly presence and the way they were on hand to respond to interested queries and comments from viewers.

(We also liked their identification badges and are looking forward to receipt of our own, which are on order for staff and trustees!)

Two RBSA Members are in the middle of the photo here...
