Mascalls Gallery is located in the heart of Kent on the site of Mascalls School in Paddock Wood. Funded by Mascalls School, the gallery is designed to broaden horizons, raise aspirations and inspire creativity.

Since opening in 2006, Mascalls Gallery has brought the work of John Piper, Marc Chagall, LS Lowry and many others to rural Kent in addition to regular exhibitions of emerging regional artists.

The gallery was founded to serve the local area but as the reputation has grown we see visitors travel for many hours to see our exhibitions.

Mascalls Gallery programmes an ambitious range of nationally important exhibitions of modern and contemporary art. Exhibitions regularly feature loans from Tate as well as other major private and public collections both in the UK and further afield.

Ed Kluz - The Lost House Revisited

  • 13 September — 13 December 2014 *on now

In his first solo museum exhibition, Kluz presents a body of large collages exploring the creation and destruction of the great country houses of Britain. Using archive prints and photographs, he reimagines buildings once erected as confident monuments and now reduced to ruins. Kluz says “It is in the distance between the source material and the reality of today that my imagination is fired.”

These works are the contemporary incarnation of a tradition and language stretching back to the 17th century. Within Kluz’s work can be seen elements of the prospect paintings of Jan Siberechts, the topographical prints of Samuel and Nathaniel Buck, through to the 20th century Recording Britain artists, most notably John Piper, whose depictions of architecture captured a country on the brink of wartime destruction. To this topographical tradition Kluz adds a theatricality, which draws on and transcends the romantic. His great houses offer the viewer a fantasy and an escape.
