Mascalls Gallery

a grey building with a mirrored silver sign, saying Mascalls Gallery running down the side of it.

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.

Peter Green: Sixty Years of Printmaking

  • 13 June — 5 September 2015 *on now

Peter Green has always been anxious to demystify the printing process, making it as simple and accessible as possible. For his relief printing, he does not use a press. Although this was initially a practical response to limitations of space and money, Green soon realised the advantages of printing by hand. Producing work in this way allowed him to explore the full depth of a cut block, and to control gradations of pressure and tone without any limit on paper size. Much of Peter’s work also features the use of paper stencils, rolling colour through a cut shape directly onto the paper’s surface.
