Member of the Rye Society of Artists
The RSA is made up of practising artists living and working within a 15 mile radius of Rye with an evolving membership of painters, sculptors, printmakers, ceramicists and more recently, photographers. More than half a century since its inception, the RSA show is held in the Dance Hall through out August and is a big attraction for summer visitors to Rye. The group has included several Royal Academicians and both Fred Cuming RA and Gus Cummins RA are currently members. Our first elected photographer was Fay Godwin and John Ryan of Captain Pugwash fame was a member for many years. One of our more recent members is Dave McKean, the internationally renowned graphic novelist and film maker who designed the 60th anniversary poster in 2011.
