The Maltings Gallery

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.

Open 10am–5.30pm • Sunday 10.30am–4.30pm

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.

Artist of the month

Sara Johnson

Sara Johnson is one of the most collected artists in The Maltings Gallery and we are delighted to welcome her new collection of work, inspired by local landscapes.

Sara trained in textile design at Winchester & Loughborough Colleges of Art 1972-76, specialising in weaving. Subsequently she trained as a garden designer follows this career alongside her painting. Sara’s work ranges from loose, coloured drawings executed on site to watercolour and mixed media paintings produced in the studio using sketches and photos. She is inspired by landscapes and seascapes, and rather than producing a literal interpretation, her work conveys the spirit and mood of a place. Sara is interested in the subtle characteristics of watercolour; the accidental effects achieved by washing out; the marks, textures and edges of the paint, and the coast, estuaries, saltmarshes and reed beds of Norfolk and Suffolk are constant themes in Sara’s work.

Sara’s new collection of work inspired by the natural environment  ‘Wide Skies and Wetlands’ is featured in The Maltings Gallery until Thursday 6 July.
