Mary is a new addition to the Maltings Gallery collection of East Anglian Printmakers. Mary originally trained as a graphic designer at Chelsea School of Art ‘On the Wing’ Collagraph’ this beautiful piece of work was created by an afternoon of happy experimentation with a new printmaking tool. She has exhibited in London and East Anglia and has also had her work selected for the RA Summer Exhibition and is part of the Sudbourne Printmakers Group.
Kate first exhibited with us in The Concert Hall Gallery at Snape Maltings with a large collection of works in oil in July 2021 as part of our emerging artists Exhibition ‘The Emerging Line of Beauty’, her work was enthusiastically received. She is now a firm favourite within the Maltings Gallery and collectors. We have received a new collection of her work especially for Spring which has been produced from her Suffolk Studio.
Eileen trained at Norwich School of Art and lives in rural Suffolk. Her work is influenced by the East Anglian style of Agriculture with a colourful, chalky, folkstyle feel to the ‘oil’ works which feels life enhancing and the abstract pieces could slot easily into either traditional or contemporary interiors.
Frankie Atkinsons' work has been schowcased at Snape since 2021, some of her most popular glazes are those influenced by the river Alde.
Alison Peet displays new creations from her Kiln in Suffolk, including exquisitely beautiful Raku and stoneware.
Emma Buckmaster has been supplying us with wonderful domestic ware with natural glazes – the works shown are Willow Ash glazed.
Mercury Hare is one of our longest standing ceramicists with his timeless pieces which are widely collected we always have a good selection of his work in the Maltings Gallery.
Louise Farnes' first stocked her work with us when she started her new life in Suffolk and we have been displaying and selling her work ever since, from classic simple white forms to brightly coloured pieces her work slots into any environment.
