Welcome

Greetings from Vision Gallery! Vision Gallery is the studio of artist illustrator Liz Hankins where Liz also promotes the work of other artists and makers in occasional studio shows- only opening a couple of times per year. The gallery reverts to being Liz's studio and teaching space between shows so viewing is by appointment.

You can still browse and buy online from the artists that we featured in our Xmas Gift Selection in 2013. Artists included selected professional makers from Sussex and beyond...Stephen Henderson (carved wood birds & fish) all the way from the Essex coast, Angela Dewar (embroidered textiles), Madeleine Bradbury (painted lampshades and lamps Bloomsbury style). These 3 artists have removed unsold work but are contactable via Vision Gallery. Other artists still with work in Vison Gallery at Blackboys include Bridget Davies (silk & leather bags, coffee pot covers, passport covers, jewellery wraps etc),Fay Hankins (hand-woven textiles - Fay's work is always at Vision Gallery and will be at The Crypt , Seaford during Artwave and Hale Farmhouse during Chiddingly Festival 2014), hand forged iron, raku by Iris Davies,and of course watercolours by Liz Hankins.
