Welcome to the Rare Skills Gallery website

Here you will find an ever-growing selection of paintings by our Artist in Residence, Andrew Redden. The Collection is arranged in eight themes – Aerial Views, My England, Big Blue, Iconic Images, Landscapes, Pencil Drawings, Linocuts and Wildlife pictures. Prints of all of these images are available, some in a choice of sizes and with frame options. If you can't find what you want amongst the options available, or you are interested in acquiring the original artwork, please contact us and we'll be glad to help.

If you would like to visit the Gallery in person, please note that we have a new home. We have outgrown The Corn Exchange and are now at 2, Ashdown Court, Lewes Road, Forest Row, East Sussex, RH18 5EZ. In this new gallery we are also exhibiting the work of several other highly-talented artists, ceramicists and artisans who work with wood, leather, canvas and precious metals. Their profiles are already included on the site and we will be featuring their work in due course.
