Artist of the week: Angie Braven


To celebrate the launch of the Rye Society of Artists’ (RSA) new website, and in advance of the RSA’s 70th Anniversary Summer Show in 2021, 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.

This week, the artist in focus is Angie Braven

Since studying, and later teaching, at Chelsea Art School, Angela Braven has been painting and exhibiting her work. With her main sources of inspiration being travels in India, Northern Africa, Spain and Greece; visually evocative writers such as Nabakov and Marquez (‘the Angel and the Organ Grinder’); dreams and their echoes.

As a neighbour of Hastings Contemporary gallery, another source of inspiration for Angela is her seaside garden and the fishing beach at Hastings Old Town.

You can also find more of Angie’s work on her website and RSA website.

  1. How lovely to see Angie’s colourful paintings. They are a beacon of light in these dark, tragic days. Along with everyone else artists have had a bad year with exhibitions cancelled and galleries closed. Here’s hoping next year we will be able to see wonderful works like these again
