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

Kim Edwards

Kim studied Fine Art at Sunderland College of Art and in Yorkshire studied printmaking with Moria McTaigue and Peter Wray RE. She moved to Suffolk in 2009 and works in a studio in Middleton. Her monotypes and paintings embody the stretch of coastline from Orford to Dunwich.

“The winter shoreline has a profound appeal with it’s opposing qualities, both comforting and menacing. Wild or contemplative the unfettered landscape repeatedly draws me back to look and feel”

Kim uses many different printmaking techniques from traditional etching methods to collagraphs and monotypes. During a an Aldeburgh Residency in January this year she made monotypes using the building’s windows as plates recording the processes on video.

She has exhibited widely including the Royal Academy and is represented in Suffolk by The Maltings Gallery.
