Montague Armstrong is a friendly new art gallery set up in 2016 by artists Jude Cowan Montague and Matthew Armstrong.

The shop, converted from an old photographic studio on the Kings Road is primarily a print workshop for the painter-printmakers and the large etching press is a unique piece of machinery bespoke-made for a master etcher known for servicing art college equipment.

The shop sells the award-winning prints of Jude Cowan Montague, who received the Gwen May prize from the Royal College of Painter-Printmakers, and ceramic works fired in their kiln. The latter can be purchased as affordable souvenirs and gifts for locals and tourists. All the artworks are original and one-offs.

Observations of people and places in the St Leonards area is inspiring new work all the time. One speciality is the creation of individual pieces working from photographs supplied by customers. Pop in or phone to discuss an original commission in ceramic or print on a theme of your choice.

Jude Cowan Montague is also a writer and poet, and her collections of poetry are available for purchase. The shop hosts occasional talks on artists, musicians and writers. There is a piano in the shop and musical events are planned throughout the year.

The shop is currently open Fridays and Saturdays and other times by appointment.
