Exhibition of original paintings of Boats, Barges and Coastal Craft of Faversham. Come and find out about the fascinating stories of some of these vessels with paintings for sale by local artist Derek Cox.
Within Faversham's rich maritime heritage, it is astonishing to discover that, over several centuries, more than 1,900 vessels have been registered at the Port of Faversham. A further 1,300 or so have been built in Faversham yards, and hundreds owned or mastered by local people. And the tradition of boat building, restoration and repair continue on the creek to this day.
The Gallery is open Monday to Saturday 10 am - 4 pm; Sunday 10 am -1 pm. Telephone 01795 534542 to check.
The artist will be at the Gallery on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays 10 am - 1 pm, and Saturdays 10 am - 4 pm.
