This year we realise the situation is very unpredictable so we know it's early but please do think about buying sooner rather than later. We have all sorts of gifts available which can be posted out free of charge to make your shopping even easier. Visit the website to see our extensive range of GIFTS.


We also have lots of new and exciting art to show you, including.....
Introducing the latest stunning originals from DAVID JAMES. Dramatic skies and beautiful reflections are a feature of this landscape and seascape artist. David currently lives in Sussex on the coast, within reach of the South Downs, so being local we can all relate to the atmospheric coastal scenes he creates.

EDGE SCULPTURE is always popular at this time of year as we start to think about the ideal present for the ones we love. Matt Buckley has just announced some new pieces to be added to the collection. If you would like to pre-order any of these please let us know asap as they are bound to be popular. A 'Buy It Now' button means we have the item in stock or we can order them in for you which can take 6-8 weeks.

Introducing a completely new style from SUZY GEE, influenced by Viveros, these originals are simply spellbinding. Suzy is a local artist based in Worthing. Although she has drawn and painted all her life it wasn't until she had a mental breakdown about 5 years ago and started going to a wonderful place for counselling where art was used as therapy, that she started learning to paint seriously. She found that she could use her paintings as her voice and that she has a lot to say!
"I like painting lots of different things as I have a million ideas in my head at any one time. From funny to controversial, anything that can provoke a reaction is what I like most!"
Suzy is definitely one to watch, her style is constantly growing and evolving....
We are delighted to introduce some lovely nostalgic sketches of children form KEITH PROCTOR. He puts the children and youngsters very much at the centre of his works of art, displaying a knack for framing his joyful subjects in timelessly innocent, playful, adventurous poses. They more often than not feature his son Jack and a family friend's daughter Lily but of course we in turn relate to them as our children or grand children up to mischief.
We look forward to seeing you in the gallery soon or please continue to get in touch by phone, e-mail, Facebook or Instagram.

We have always believed that home, family and community are the most important things in life. They are the things which are permanent and which matter deeply to all of us, and we are proud to say we have built Room With A View on the idea that they should be appreciated, enjoyed and celebrated. These values have never been more important to us than they are now, at a time when all of our lives have been touched by the Coronavirus pandemic. With the gallery now closed, we are all doing our part to protect our homes, families and communities - those things that we all hold so dear. We will miss seeing you all in the gallery, but we know that by doing what is right we will successfully navigate these uncertain times together.
Due to the uncertainty of getting deliveries to you and issues with taking payment we have had to take the 'Buy It Now' buttons off the website. We are of course still here to help so please don’t hesitate to contact us on 01903 217600 or email gallery@roomwithaviewfineart.com. You can also follow us on Facebook and Instagram to keep updated, we will look forward to staying connected with you.

Obviously we should have been planning the FROGMAN 30th anniversary tour event now but this is cancelled as Tim can't travel due to the pandemic. This hasn't stopped him creating some new frogs though, Zenith, Sage, Pattycake and Two Of A Kind to name a few. These are currently delayed due to Hurricane Laura in America but hopefully they should be with us in the near future....
We have lots of new and exciting art to show you, including the latest releases from....

Gary Walton

Introducing the latest limited editions from GARY WALTON featuring his quirky boats and houses. He says: "After being given an opportunity to explore and pursue my artistic skills I wanted to be different from all the other artists so started to develop my own unique personal style. It's very whimsical, romantic and happy; quirky, two-dimensional with a slight intriguing air of fantasy combined with a twist of reality within." They certainly make us smile and we hope you enjoy them too.

Tom Butler

Tom Butler’s technique and style have evolved enormously over the years. Especially when he began introducing mixed media into work with a method of transferring photocopied material onto any surface. This technique is integral for Tom to create his show stopping collages using a whole range of materials; in his imaginative hands a section of a crossword puzzle may become a block of flats, a wine bottle, or a church spire, and this unique approach adds intrigue, resonance and a touch of humour to every scene. Please visit the website to view the range of his work that we have available.

We look forward to seeing you in the gallery soon or please continue to get in touch by phone, e-mail, Facebook or Instagram.

The much awaited Tutankhamun from EDGE SCULPTURE has now arrived in the gallery, it really is a striking piece for the great price of £230. During lockdown Matt Buckley has been isolating in his shed and has shown some work in progress teasers of the next releases, we can't wait to see how they turn out......
We are delighted to present a magnificent trio of wildlife portraits from DARRYN EGGLETON These high-impact statement pieces place their subjects against a distinctive single colour backdrop to create a hypnotic and lifelike presence. The only hint of their environment is seen through the reflections in their eyes and this almost cinematic effect makes each animal seem to project beyond the plane of the canvas, bringing them into sharp and immediate relief - dramatic examples of photo-realism with a contemporary twist.

This magnificent new collection of limited editions and original paintings features some of Philip's most exotic and exciting adventures, as well as some beautiful reflective pieces portraying the shoreline of his Irish home.
Philip's powerful and eloquent oil paintings and pastels have captivated a generation of art lovers and won him an impressive range of awards, media coverage and celebrity collectors, from Bono and Dolly Parton to Bill Clinton. As his reputation has grown, his original work has become increasingly sought after, and his status as one of the UK's most collectable artists has been confirmed.
"As an artist I travel the world looking for new locations and new inspiration. I want to visit places where people seldom venture, but also where an artist has never painted. New life challenges provide the impetus for my work and are an essential element of my painting process"
