A contemporary art gallery selling original art and one of the leading artist-run galleries in the UK. Devoted to promoting its artists and their work, there are complete exhibition changes every 6-weeks and an exciting programme of featured artists who showcase their work throughout the year as well as well-publicised special events. Approximately 80 original works of art are on display at any one time by local artists throughout the year; including paintings, drawings, prints, mixed media, ceramics and glass. 

Established in 2005, Chalk Gallery is one of the first artist-led cooperative galleries in the UK. Run by its members, Chalk Gallery is devoted to nurturing and promoting its artists and their work rather than for profit. The artists gain the opportunity to learn everything about running the gallery whilst having the freedom to grow artistically and have a democratic voice and shared responsibility. For practical reasons, all the member artists live and work within an hour of the gallery.

Chalk Gallery are also members of Lewes High Street Traders Association, Client Earth and annual participants in Artwave.
