Established in 2005, Chalk Gallery is one of the first artist-led cooperative galleries in the UK and is one of the leading contemporary galleries in the culturally-rich county town of Lewes.
A well-loved destination for art lovers and embedded in the local art community, Chalk Gallery is renowned for nurturing local artistic talent and empowering its artists who are at various stages in their careers to evolve in a friendly, supportive community. All the artists live and work within an hour of the gallery.
Constantly showing approximately 70 - 90 new works of art in a variety of media, styles, subjects and techniques at any one time, there are complete exhibition changes every 9 weeks with works of art that include paintings, mixed media, digital art, ceramics, glass, sculpture and original prints. The gallery also has a programme of featured artists throughout the year as well as guest artists and other publicised special events.
Run by its members, Chalk Gallery is devoted to promoting the artists and their work rather than for profit. In turn, Chalk artists gain the opportunity to learn everything about the gallery business whilst having a democratic voice in deciding the direction of the gallery.
Gallery opening hours are
Thursday to Sunday, 11am to 4pm
Run by the artists with a warm welcome guaranteed.
