Tyland Barn Art Gallery

This August we are excited to welcome Greg Hitchcock to our Tyland Barn Gallery. 

Greg has been teaching himself photography for twenty years, inspired by the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition from a young age. For the past several years he has pursued a fine art approach to photography, seeking to draw attention to what he considers beautiful or interesting – whether they be traditional subjects or things overlooked by other photographers. He works in a number of formats in both film and digital, choosing whichever best suits the image he is aiming for, and usually using the same technique for an entire project.

This is Greg’s first exhibition, the prints taken from a few of his on-going projects, principally inspired by botanical subjects, as well as other images chosen to complement these or that are of local interest.

Romney Marsh Gallery

This July the gallery hosts Ruth Parkinson who is a professional artist living on the Kent Coast. 

She Loves the desolation of Dungeness and the Marsh, with its immense skies and ever changing tide along the shores; sometimes braving tempests, to experience the exhilaration of nature. This is where she gets her inspiration from for her art work.

A recent sojourn within the West Countries spectacular coastlines, coupled with immersion in Storms Dylan and Eleanor, has amplified her focus on the dramatic ever changing "plasticity" of the material world; subsequent reflections, expressed within her recent work.
