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.

Artist of the Month

Chrissy Norman

Chrissy produced her first etching plate nearly 20 years ago and she has been etching ever since. It provides her with the ideal medium to express her love of drawing and tonal studies. She has a constant fascination for trees, often looking for a different angle and patterns created by light and shadow.

Her favourite season for inspiration is winter and there will be etchings and monotypes based on this theme. All etchings are produced in the traditional way with copper or zinc plates and acid.  These are made up at the workshops of Sudbourne Park Printmakers where she is a member and runs etching courses.

Chrissy has a studio at her home near the Suffolk coast.
