This gallery was a nice surprise for us in High Street. Beautiful, interesting and funny art on display and to buy. The Permanent Collection in the back was less interesting for us. Worth spending some time here.

Local artists have lots of things to see and buy - very interesting. A spacious interior - it goes back further than you think from the outside and affords good views to the River Rother. A welcome change from all the antique shops and tea shops.

bright and airy and a perfect place to showcase new artists and also more established ones in the lower gallery and upstairs the more formal gallery for historical older masters. In the lower gallery you can purchase pictures, jewellery, statues,china, and all sorts of art and pieces for small amounts of money to build up your collection to hopefully have a master piece one day, also more expensive pieces for the larger wallets. The artists change every so often so if you see a piece you like and can afford it buy it at that time or the quote "he who hesitates is lost" comes to mind as it happened to me, with regrets. The staff are very friendly and usually the ladies upstairs are very knowledgeable of the more mature art. well worth putting your head in the door

There are two sides to the art gallery - the permament collection, and the new "wing" which has stunning art for sale. The current display is of larger peices, which are fabulous, but we couldn't quite afford the price-tags of the R.A. accredited artist! Still, maybe next time.

Lovely bright gallery, with the attendant very knowledgable and chatty. She genuinely loved the art and the gallery, and her enthusiasm shone through.

Well worth a visit.
