Rare skills thrive in Sussex
At the beginning of a year when we are likely to see the world and our place within it undergo considerable change, it is good to know that exceptional creativity, beautiful materials and exquisite craft skills remain a constant currency.
Since coming to Forest Row late last summer, we have been delighted by the extremely positive comments we receive about the collection of paintings, ceramics, decorative wood turning, jewellery and leather work we have on show.
The majority of our artists and artisans reside in Sussex and Kent and their work reflects the natural beauty of the area as well as its architecture and traditions.
The greatest joy of running a gallery is being able to build relationships with the artists you represent and the ever-growing band of customers who relish what they create.
We feel very lucky to be exhibiting works by George Antoni, Mark Beverton, Claire Gill, Lorraine Gibby, Josie Gamble, Andrew Redden, Jan Norman, Katrina Pechal, Graham Sendall, Sonya Tatham, Dennis Hales and Simon Kemp, as well as the wonderful leather, canvas and tweed items from Taylor Kent, Glen Almond Tweed company and Vicky Baker.
As an encouragement to come and see us, during January we are offering a 10% discount on all items except original paintings to readers of ingénu/e.
