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 & takeaway hot drinks, bread & pastries in the Food Hall 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.

Reflecting British and local art
Above all, the sense of place that surrounds the Maltings unites all the work we show – the huge Suffolk skies, the whispering reeds, the wonderful beaches and the peaceful woodlands are all represented here in the tones, textures and subject matter of the Gallery collections. From ceramics to paintings, sculpture to jewellery – there is a sense of continuity and reflection of this timeless environment in our Gallery collections.
Artist of the Month
“Living in Suffolk my subjects are often related to the beautiful local landscapes that surround me, particularly water-based areas such as reeds and rivers. Although each picture evolves during the painting process perhaps leaving only a figment of the original image. The vast Suffolk skies are often a main feature in my pictures as these are an important feature in this local landscape. Some examples of my work include: Iken Church, Bawdsey and the River Deben, at Woodbridge.
Having studied “A” Level Art, I then did a BSc and Diploma in Occupational Therapy and have used art as a creative and therapeutic tool for many years in England and abroad.
Much of my work is carried out with a palette knife using a technique called ‘impasto’. I have experimented with a variety of media although at present I am enjoying the freedom and thickness of oil paints. Usually, I tend to use a limited range of colours preferring to mix my own and adjusting this on the canvas as my work evolves.”
