71, THE MAKERS GALLERY OF LEWES was founded between the UK lockdowns of 2020 by friends Abby Mosseri, Jeweller and Torz Dallison, Photographer.
The inspired coupling of these two artists is rooted in a long term friendship which began in the jewellery studios of Brighton. We are delighted to be working together again as our lives allow time to develop a new chapter of both our careers.
This new gallery, nestled between the established shops on the high street in Lewes, offers a new approach to retail – combining our workspaces and showroom. The original Georgian shop front is where our two crafts harmoniously meet for exhibitions and retail experiences.
Keeping the gallery diverse and vibrant is a priority for us as curious makers, with this in mind we have carefully designed the space to enable other artists to exhibit their work individually or as group pop ups.
As we move away from the restrictions of Covid-19 we plan to host events, artist talks and gatherings across all disciplines. The events will help to gather a deeper understanding of their practises and inspirations for the art they create.
Abby will be available by appointment to discuss bespoke jewellery commissions whilst continuing designing and creating unique mini collections of jewellery some of which will be exclusively for sale in the gallery.
