We are delighted to present our ‘Spring Fling’ exhibition with a mix of arts and crafts – ceramics, glass, paintings, jewellery and photography.
The group of artists that make up ‘The Marsh Art Collective’ have come together through friendship and the common belief that art has provided each of us with an important opportunity for creative well-being.
We bring a mixture of ceramics, photography, jewellery, paintings, fused and stained glass.
Our ‘Spring Fling’ exhibition is an opportunity to share the work that we have created which captures our collective love of nature, – the colour, shape and pattern that is in our world.

The Marsh Art Collective are:
Gilly Harding – I’ve loved stained glass since I was a small child visiting churches on family holidays – the colours, the brightness and the abstract forms. Sometimes they tell a story, sometimes they don’t need to. I started making my own panels a few years ago and now create stained glass and fused glass pieces in my ‘GlassShed’ studio in Rye. The sun shining through a beautiful piece of glass just brightens my day.
Jane Howard – Jane photographs the beautiful world she sees ….. and enjoys it!
Judith Ruffhead – Producing artisan jewellery inspired by her world of seaside and sunshine. Judith recreates textures, forms, light and shadow in silver, which she sells through ‘Curlew Creations’.
Margaret Stonham – Margaret enjoys creating individual ceramic work at The Dog House Pottery. Her work is inspired by the colours, texture, pattern and movement observed in the rural and coastal environments that surround her. She is excited by the range of opportunities offered by the medium of clay and the fun of exploring it’s potential.
Sandra Sarkies – After leaving a career in teaching, Sandra decided to make art her new passion in life. She began her journey with paint and is now broadening her creative horizon by dabbling in a range of artistic media. You will find Sandra out and about getting inspiration from the beautiful landscape of Rye, or in her ‘Toogood’ studio getting creative.
Steve Hovell – Having retired nearly 3 years ago, I wanted to pursue an art based hobby. Luckily, I have a good friend at the ‘Dog House Pottery’ who has been my mentor and had endless patience teaching me the love of clay.
