Art Wall

Rye Harbour Discovery Centre Art Wall

We have been working hand in hand with the management team at the Discovery Centre to create a new focal point for local artists within the centre, which has so far raised over £4000 for the Reserve.
The new Art Wall was generously donated by committee member and wildlife artist James Tomlinson.
The wall has been carefully designed so it doesn’t affect the wood cladding of the centre but will provide a good and well-lit hanging space for artwork.
The Art Wall features work from well-known professional artists and from keen and talented amateurs, providing an ever-changing display of exciting nature-based art inspired by the Reserve.

Artists who have exhibited so far, include: Robert Greenhalf, Cliff Dean, James Tomlinson, Stephen Message, Peter Greenhalf, Anna Wilson Patterson, Annie Soudain, Robbie Gooders, Jillian Eldridge, Louisa Crispin, Jane Beecham, Siobhan O’Hanlan, Denise Franklin, Karl Terry, Joanna Terry

The Art Wall was refurbished in January 2024 ready for water colours by Kathleen Loughton-Mead and wildlife photography by Howard Kearley.

We hope you’ll drop in to see the exhibitions.

Exhibitors for the Art Wall have been booked in for the next 12 months, but you are welcome to apply to exhibit here. The criteria are that you are inspired by the reserve, or create artwork on, or about the reserve.
