Art Gallery at Rest
At Rest, we believe in supporting local and ethical artists and artisans. This is why we are also an art gallery. We exhibit beautiful art by local artists shown below.
Feedback from our clients and their continued support make us feel proud that we contribute to making them look and feel better. But we are more than a salon. We are part of a very special community, in the heart of Brighton & Hove.

Jacqueline Newman, known as Jacque, is based in West Sussex.
"I am influenced by the desire to understand and communicate my emotions through my art. I’m interested in how I have experienced and responded to the myriad of physical feelings that accompany emotions like adoration, amusement, anger, awe, desire, fear, sadness. I feel things crazy intense, which is a part of my experience being neurodiverse. ."
