newart gallery is run by Peter H Patterson. He ran a printing business and printed catalogues for a gallery in London, Austin Desmond, which opened up his passion for art. On his semi retirement he opened a gallery in Billericay, Essex, in 2007. Having recently moved to East Sussex he found the Coach House Gallery in Alfriston and took it over in October 2016.
He chooses artists because he likes their artwork and he wants to share their passion with the public. Most of the artists are local or from Essex. He has new artists on a regularly basis.
The gallery represents around 30 artists who use different styles and mediums. It offers an eclectic mixture of art in oils, watercolours, acrylics, pastels, porcelain and sculpture.
