The Whittox Gallery

The Whittox Gallery is a contemporary art gallery showcasing the finest contemporary professional artists and designers. Located within RISE, a beautifully restored church dating back to the early 1800s. The Gallery is a bright and innovative elevated art space overlooking the Rye Bakery café. The gallery boasts carefully curated work from cutting-edge artists, and for the past five years, has established the gallery's reputation for exhibiting the highest standard of works. All art works are available for sale through
the gallery.

Each show is expertly curated in-house by Sarah Robson. Sourcing local and national artists and designers from all different mediums and styles, Sarah’s previous background in the fashion and textile design industry and eye for detail and colour, ensures each collection promises to inspire and excite visitors to the unique gallery setting, while also complimenting the historic and architectural features of the building.

Open to the public 5 days a week and all exhibitions are free to attend.  Visitors are welcome to explore the gallery and the innovative works of art throughout the year.

Current Exhibition

Andrew Roberts


18th March - 16th April 2023

Andrew Roberts is a British ‘plein air’ artist exploring paint, light, contemporary life and living. His rich and gestural paintings depict diverse landscapes across the UK and Europe.

Painted outdoors in situ, ‘en plein air’, and always in square format, the works take on the physicality of their subjects through rich impasto surfaces, dynamic glazing techniques, and romantic, opulent palettes. They are highly evocative of the atmosphere of the landscape, captivating viewers and transporting them to another place and time.

Andrew’s current paintings have been painted all over UK in parts of Cornwall, Sussex, Surrey and Somerset, also on his recent trips to Brittany in France and Morocco.

We are thrilled to be able to showcase another solo show from this wonderful artist who last exhibited with us here in 2018 with his solo show ‘If Not Now, Then When’.
