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.

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 April 12. In addition, the RSA will be hosting its 70th Anniversary Summer Show later in 2021.

This week, the artist in focus is Peter Greenhalf

Peter Greenhalf has been a photographer for over 40 years and specialises in historical photographic techniques. He is particularly interested in cyanotypes, (one of the oldest photographic techniques), Van Dyke prints, Gum-bichromates (where the photograph is created from watercolour pigment) and salt prints. He processes film and print in his Rye Harbour studio. Recent projects have included landscapes, ancient sites, the South Downs and Rye Bay.

You can see more of Peter’s work on his website, on the RSA website at on the Avocet Gallery website; Twitter avocetgal and Facebook Avocet Gallery

  1. Very pleased to see Peter in the ‘Artist of the Week’ slot. It will be even better to see the actual work if the Rye Society of Artists Spring Show really does open at Rye Art Gallery!
