Situated next to the well known Retro shop in Hastings High street, and including the wire wrap jewellery of Seacandy, the Ryepress studio and art gallery joins a growing collection of art galleries in Hastings. The Gallery exhibits all of Colin’s limited edition original etchings, reproduction giclee prints, original oil and acrylic paintings as well as giclee printed greeting cards of his recent paintings exclusive to the Ryepress art gallery
With the eponymous Rye press now installed in the rear of the art gallery, the original print studio also features ad-hoc etching demonstrations. Questions about printmaking methods are encouraged and visitors are offered a unique opportunity to see the etching process in action, preview proof prints of the various stages of each new etching and in many cases handle the original etched copper plates. See Etchings for a detailed explanation of the etching process..
The Art Gallery and Studio opening opening hours are:
Tuesday - Sunday 10.30 - 5.30 pm (Monday ad hoc)
As The Rye press art Gallery is also a working studio opening hours are flexible; there may well be times when the shop is open outside of these times or indeed closed between these times. Please ring the white doorbell or Phone 07748495947 or 01424 424 501 for service.
