Artist of the week


To celebrate the launch of the Rye Society of Artists’ (RSA) new website, Rye News continues to profile one of their artists each week – including links to their website and social media accounts so you can keep up-to-date on their activities.

Fingers crossed that lockdown will be lifted by March and you can view some of the RSA member’s work at their Spring Exhibition, entitled “There will be Growth in Spring”, at Rye Art Gallery from March 20 to May 1. In addition, the RSA will be hosting their 70th Anniversary Summer Show later in the year.

This week, the artist in focus is Annabel Faraday

Annabel was born in Germany in 1949, and spent her childhood in Egypt. In her early teenage years she took classes at Farnham Art School in clay and sculpture followed by a foundation course at Winchester, a sociology degree at Essex University, and a Ph.D. City Lit Ceramics Diploma course in her early 40s.

Annabel is a professional member of Craft Potters Association, Crafts Council Maker and Member of Hastings Clay Culture Trail. Her work is included in the collections of the Potteries Museum, Stoke-on-Trent, Geffrye Museum, Hackney, London, and Grassi Museum of Applied Art, Leipzig.

You can see more of Annabel’s work on Facebook AnnabelFaradayClay and Instagram @clayculturetrail, on her website and also on the RSA website
