The Maltings Gallery

Contemporary and traditional British art, from established favourites to new names

Immerse yourself in a Gallery dedicated to local and East Anglian paintings, ceramics, sculptures and jewellery.

The Maltings Gallery at Snape Maltings is a treasure box of wonderful finds from Suffolk and further afield. From the paintings of the celebrated Maggi Hambling CBE – created in her studio just a few miles away – to new work  from up-and-coming printmakers based in local villages, there is something here for every budget, making The Maltings Gallery a wonderful place to shop for presents – or to treat yourself.

Shops & Galleries open: Monday–Saturday 10am–5.30pm • Sunday 10.30am–4.30pm (browsing from 10am)

We work continually to introduce new creative talents as well as showcasing nationally-collected local artists including Jelly Green, Jill Draper and Jason Gathorne-Hardy through residencies and a changing programme of exhibitions.
