Jane Palmer & Friends

open house, May 7 to 29 2022

We’re back with a house full of beautiful new fine art. Come and see it and meet the artists (and scroll to the bottom of this page for a video preview).

We’re open from 11.00 to 5.00 on Saturdays and Sundays from May 7th to 29th 2022

at 239 Preston Drove, Brighton BN1 6FL

(opposite Tilt cafe, and close to the Fiveways junction and buses 26, 46 and 52. 10 minutes walk from London Road station.)

Jane Palmer is showing her latest portraits in oils, sensitive life drawings, local landscapes and some stunning new still lifes exploring colour and reflection, including an exquisite series of tiny paintings of fruit.   Read more about Jane here.

This year we’re delighted to welcome Lucy Bristow with her vivid, semi-abstract Sussex landscapes.  Lucy loves “getting lost with OS maps” in the South Downs, then returning to her studio to paint what she’s seen.



We’re delighted to welcome back:

Stef Hunter. Once again we’re showing Stef’s wonderful ceramics, exploring unexpected themes and hand-building ‘layers of history’ into each piece. 


Nigel Hunter. Cool off in our tranquil back garden surrounded by Nigel’s latest sculptures – and see if you can resist touching them!  Come early if you think you might want to buy one: they sold out last year.


Tan Kingston is a full time figurative and narrative painter.  We have more of Tan’s gorgeous, decorative paintings of everyday life, and her stylised nudes.  “It’s the colour that does the talking” says Tan. 



Pam Glew. We have Pam’s exciting mixed-media work combining painting, collage and vintage flags, popular with private collectors around the world. 



When we first opened in 2019, one delighted guest wrote, “Stunning work, so glad I came”, and Jane won AOH’s ‘Artist of the Year’ award.  We opened again last year and many guests told us they’d made a point of coming back for more.  Here’s a preview, to get you in the mood for your visit:
