Nestling in the folds of the South Downs, the culturally-rich market town of Lewes is home to Chalk Gallery. Established in 2004, Chalk Gallery is one of the first artist-led cooperative galleries in the UK and continues to display a high standard of vibrant work. The gallery is run by twenty one local artists offering original, affordable art.
Chalk Gallery is delighted to welcome two new artists this season, Melissa Birch and Andrew Milne.
Melissa joined us at the end of last year and is an artist and printmaker whose love of lino printing is grounded in a passion for simplicity of form and line. She produces hand pulled prints in small editions inspired by plant forms in the local countryside and her own garden.
Andrew, having been a graphic designer, works in mixed media producing expressive, gestural paintings often depicting beguiling pathways through the natural landscape reflecting the changing seasons and the tranquility of rural spaces.
We really look forward to them exhibiting with us this year and sharing their fantastic work with you.
While the gallery is closed, our social media and gallery website with its online shop (open 24/7) are constantly updated with new artworks and news from all the artists. From February onwards, similar to last year’s lockdowns, we will be showcasing new artworks in monthly mixed window displays which will be available to buy from our online shop www.chalkgallerylewes.co.uk/shop.
In the meantime, we look forward to restarting our exciting programme of Featured Artists and Guest Artists for 2021 as soon as it is safe to do so.
