Firstly thank you so much to all of you who were able to join us at the weekend for the fantastic event with MAX BRANDRETT. We hope you enjoyed meeting such a character, with more than a story or two to tell....

Never before have we had a flash sale at the gallery but we have so much new artwork coming in that we need to have a clear out to make some space, so grab a bargain whilst you get the opportunity. The sale will run from Friday 5th July to Sunday 7th July OR to beat the crowds visit our website NOW!!!

With Worthing Pride happening on the 13th July we are pleased to be stocking some fabulous pieces from SARAH HOLMES , including the late great George Michael. Sarah produces art with an intensity and emotion that draws its audience into the soul of her subject. Her monochrome portraits of international iconic figures from the past and present are subtle in their execution, and raw in their finality. Combining smooth brush strokes and soft blending with stark lines and harsh edges, she builds up to 30 layers in her pieces to create a depth of vision rarely found in such a relative newcomer to the art scene. She is an undoubted rising star, and her pieces bring with them a promise of persistence and longevity. Sarah hides messages within her paintings which can be completely missed by the viewer, but once noticed, cannot be ignored - some are instantly recognisable while others are harder to find. She says, "I tend to choose strong characters to paint. Charismatic people. I want to celebrate people from history that have somehow changed the world we live in or at the very least made a lasting impression on it."

As always get in touch with us by phone, e-mail, Facebook or Instagram.

June 2019

Firstly thank you so much to all of you who were able to join us at Sussex Art Fair at Goodwood Racecourse. We had a great time and learnt a lot from the experience, so much so that we have already agreed to be a part of the next event which will be at Brighton Racecourse in October so save the date of the 11/12/13 weekend to be a part of this fabulous occasion…..

Those of you who came and met MAX BRANDRETT would have loved what an interesting character he is, we are pleased to announce that he will be joining us to paint in the gallery on Saturday 29th June. Max developed his art skills after running away from his Barnardo’s children’s home to join the circus at 15. Whilst grooming elephants and painting the trucks for 2 years, he found his passion for art. After a chance meeting with the famous forger Tom Keating, Max was tempted to experiment with copying the great masters. Word of his talents reached the black market, and the Kray twins asked for a portrait of their mother, which they loved. Brandrett however, did end up paying the price with three prison sentences and promised he wouldn’t do it again, even when his most profitable piece fetched over £12,000 back in the 80’s. Now he is just looking for the respect his skills deserve. He prefers working on detailed recreations that challenge his skills. He has received commissions from Tim Rice and Chris Ellison most recently. He still produces copies of famous pieces, but by changing one tiny detail in each image, this time it is legal….

The latest release from JACK VETTRIANO is Betrayal – First Kiss is an edition size of 100 with 10 artist’s proofs. We are pleased to say that we have secured our allocation of this piece which is already sold out at the publishers. Call us to secure yours as this beautiful image is bound to be popular.

Also happening this month is obviously Father’s Day on Sunday 16th June, we have plenty of ideas of gifts so pop in and see us. EDGE SCULPTURE have released some amazing pieces recently, just look at the selection below.

May 2019

We are looking forward to exciting times in the gallery this month. We are pleased to be exhibiting at the inaugural West Sussex Art Fair at Goodwood Racecourse the private view is on the 17th from 6pm until 9pm. Then general admission is on the 18th 10am to 6pm and 19th 10am to 5pm. We will be showing high profile artists such as Sherree Valentine Daines, Jack Vettriano and Danny Abrahams as well as The Royal artist Darren Baker.

DARREN BAKER has become one of the UK's most well-known and collectable artists of the 21st century. A perfectionist who has, for most of his life, been developing techniques to create a form of realism comparable to photography. This master artist's accolades include the official portrait artist to Her Majesty The Queen in 2011 and more recently he was invited by the Prince's Trust to create Prince Charles' portrait for his 70th birthday. His impressive portfolio graces many prestigious collections including 10 Downing Street and The House of Lords so we feel very honoured to have him as part of our show.

For more than twenty years JACK VETTRIANO has enjoyed worldwide acclaim and he is now regarded as one of the most well-loved contemporary painters of our time. His work is nostalgic, cinematic feel. He gives a suggestion of a story, setting the scene but willing the viewer to imagine the narrative yet to unfold. We will be showing a variety of his work so do come along and see it for yourself.

Also showing will be sculptor JENNINE PARKER whose passion is the human form. When sculpting she captures the living world, communicates life, movement and personality by recreating the lines and shapes of the human figure.
