The Lopping Hall Gallery was opened at 187b High Road, adjacent to the Hall itself, in 2011 with funding from the Lopping Hall Endowment. The intention of the Trustees was to increase the profile of the visual arts in Loughton by providing a permanent exhibition space and also for the Centre to be an information centre for the arts within the area. It continues to be supported by the Endowment.

The space is dedicated to the visual arts: painting and drawing, photography, sculpture, design. The Gallery offers  a small but well-situated exhibition space to artists both local and from the surrounding area as well as exhibition space to local groups, organisations and schools.  All exhibitions are free and change once a fortnight; all shows run for two weeks from start date.  The Gallery is open from 10am to 4 pm, Monday to Saturday. The Gallery is staffed by friendly and helpful volunteers who will be happy to discuss any aspect of the exhibition with you, and deal with any other queries you may have. 

For information about holding an exhibition at the Lopping Hall Gallery, please see the "exhibit" page on the Gallery website.

Tony Maryan

Tony was born in Walthamstow in 1947 and moved to Loughton around 30 years ago.  He joined the Epping Art Society in 1998 and has exhibited at their Annual Exhibitions ever since. For the last few years Tony and a few fellow artists have staged an Exhibition in Southwold he has also exhibited in Ware.

 His subject matter consists mainly of Landscapes, Buildings, Harbour Scenes and Churches.  He spends a lot of time in the Suffolk area and finds lots of suitable material for painting in Woodbridge, Pin Mill, Southwold and the surrounding area. He likes old boats and boat sheds, anything that looks old and rusting generally attracts as it seems to make an interesting painting.
Tony’s preferred medium is watercolour and sometimes acrylics although he has recently been using oils.

John Leyton and Anne Daniels – Interpretation of Landscape
John and Anne have in common a fascination with printmaking techniques. In different ways they have been exploring how to
capture the essence and spirit of real and imagined landscapes through use of print processes, such as monoprint, silk screen, drypoint, lino and wood cut. John has a particular fascination with arboreal iconography; while Anne works with pressure and fluidity to mimic the natural processes of growth and decay, and employs the detailed marks to be found in nature to drive her work into abstraction.
