Sea Pictures Gallery, Clare specialising in original, affordable, contemporary marine art in all media.
In a Georgian shop in the heart of Clare, Suffolk’s smallest town, you will find a contemporary art gallery specialising in maritime inspired art. Sarah and Alaric Pugh run Sea Pictures Gallery which stocks high quality, original art in all media from artists across the UK. Exhibitions change every six weeks and many of the artists we represent are members of the big painting societies such as the RI, RSMA, PS, SWLA and SWA. Our photographers are all professionals and include members of the BIPP and RPS.
Sea Pictures Gallery is also the home of Suffolk Framing, handling all conservation, restoration and framing needs.
Normal Opening Times are:
Monday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday – 10am-5pm Sunday 11.30am-3.30pm
The gallery is closed at the moment for re-hanging and a short holiday. The next exhibition opens on Saturday 5th September at 10am and is entitled – ALL HANDS ON DECK – featuring the work of many members of the East Anglian Group of Marine Artists. The exhibition runs until 26th October.
You can easily spend a day in Clare as there is something for everyone here. Come and shop locally and leave the big shopping centre hassle behind! To download our Shop Locally leaflet
