Rye Art Gallery
Rye Art Gallery
The Rye Art Gallery is located in a pair of historic buildings in the heart of old Rye. The collections include works of art chosen for their regional and, in some cases, their national importance.

The gallery was founded by artists Mary and Howard Stormont in 1957. The Stormont's bequeathed over 100 works to the museum, and these paintings form the core of the gallery collection. The initial collections have been expanded over the years, and the gallery now houses over 460 works.

The Stormont gallery's permanent exhibition displays paintings, prints, drawings, photographs, and sculpture, primarily from the 19th and 20th centuries. Linked to the permanent collection is The Easton Rooms, where visitors can purchase art from [primarily] modern artists and craftspeople.
