Sussex Barn Gallery at West Dean College and Gardens
West Dean College
West Dean College and Gardens mean different things to different people. It is a unique community, a creative and rich mélange of craftspeople and artists, conservators and restorers, working alongside farmers, foresters, builders and gardeners. West Dean College is run by the Edward James Foundation, a charitable trust based in a fine country house with an estate encompassing park and gardens, an arboretum, farms, forestry and a nature reserve.
The new Sussex Barn Gallery features temporary exhibitions of work associated with the College and its founder, Edward James, patron of the Surrealists, as well as local artists.
