Af­ter more than 15 years in Long Melford, The Hunter Gallery has moved to Bury St Ed­munds, to a beau­ti­ful spot be­tween the Abbey Gar­dens and St Ed­munds­bury Cathe­dral.

The gallery was the first in Long Melford when it opened in 2001. Since that time it has es­tab­lished a solid rep­u­ta­tion for the high qual­ity of orig­i­nal work it ex­hibits and sells, and a loyal fol­low­ing from cus­tomers who ap­pre­ci­ate art in all its var­i­ous styles and forms.

The Hunter Gallery rep­re­sents well known lo­cal artists from Suf­folk, Nor­folk and Es­sex, along­side some of the UK’s most re­spected cre­ators of paint­ings, sculp­ture and fur­ni­ture. It spe­cialises in art for the home, with some­thing to suit all tastes and bud­gets – con­tem­po­rary fine art in an ex­cit­ing and eclec­tic range of styles that range from fig­u­ra­tive to semi-ab­stract in dif­fer­ent me­dia.

Pro­fes­sional artists are care­fully se­lected, although the gallery also con­sid­ers ap­pli­ca­tions from young, up­com­ing artists with po­ten­tial. This sum­mer, The Hunter Gallery is stag­ing shows for two of its most pop­u­lar artists. From July 7-22 it will show the work of Ed­ward Noott RBSA, and from Au­gust 11-26 Suf­folk artist Alexan­der Deben­ham will ex­hibit with sculp­tor John Brown.


Ed­ward Noott RBSA was born in 1965 in Worces­ter. He stud­ied at Chel­tenham Col­lege of Art, Trent Uni­ver­sity and the State Uni­ver­sity of New York.

Noott’s work has been dis­played in many ex­hi­bi­tions in Eng­land and the USA. Awards in­clude the Royal Birm­ing­ham So­ci­ety of Artists Open Ex­hi­bi­tion Best Paint­ing and the Royal West of Eng­land Academy Pur­chase Prize. He is a full mem­ber of the Royal Birm­ing­ham So­ci­ety of Artists.

Noott has ex­hib­ited with The Hunter Gallery for 12 years and has al­ways been one of its most col­lected artists.

His paint­ings are a cel­e­bra­tion of places close to many hearts, with his de­light­ful rem­i­nis­cences of sum­mers spent in Eng­land, Italy or France.

His work in­cludes lovely English coun­try gar­den de­pic­tions, rolling land­scapes and river scenes, stun­ning sun­sets in Venice, Paris, New York or Lon­don.

The beau­ti­ful dap­pled light only ever seen in the south of France, and that he masters so well, is par­tic­u­larly well de­picted, and his im­pres­sion­is­tic style is some­times rem­i­nis­cent of Monet, and even of Turner. It’s no sur­prise to know that his paint­ings are col­lected all over the world.

Ed­ward Noott will be present through­out the day at the open­ing of the ex­hi­bi­tion on Satur­day July 7. N
