Chris Newson & Maggi Hambling.jpg

Chris Newson


An exciting solo exhibition by a talented local artist living in Saxmundham.

Probably the best way to describe Chris and his intense relationship with paint is a recent quote by his mentor Maggi Hambling:

“Newson's art is his life, so it speaks to us about our own lives - fears, joys, grief and delight. It's all here - full of colour and living paint.”
