Our Fine Art Gallery & Printmaking Studio

Our beautiful fine art gallery,  printmaking studio and Framing workshop is located in the heart of Ironbridge. The attractive industrial brick and wood timber frame building, with a 40ft high ceiling, is the perfect setting.

We are proud to be a lively hub for artists and art lovers alike here at Ironbridge Fine Arts & Framing offering a huge array of services, products, and workshops.

With over forty years of experience, at Ironbridge Fine Arts & Framing, we continue to work with a wide range of people. Many artists, schools, individuals, art groups and art societies come to our printmaking studio to learn about the art of printmaking as well as offering Guild Certified Framing and Art Sure approved Giclee Printing. Our work has been carried out across Shropshire, the UK and right across the world.

Our fine art gallery runs on our passion for printmaking. Similarly, we put our passion into raising the awareness, profile, and accessibility of printmaking and fine art into everything we do. Our passion grows daily; as we see the joy that it brings people. We love what we do and enjoy seeing the positive effect and support that we can give to our customers.

As real artists, we know the dedication, passion, and drive that goes into producing artwork and being successful. As a business, we offer a range of services for every requirement that you may have. This ranges from drawing workshops, teaching the art of printmaking in our printmaking studio and being the sole distributor of the Gunning Arts Printing Presses. We carry out giclee printing and scanning, as well as artwork framing to guild-commended standards. Moreover, we also sell incredible artwork within our beautiful fine art gallery!

Ironbridge Fine Arts - Summer Exhibition

Ironbridge Fine Arts Summer Exhibition

Ironbridge Fine Arts Spring Exhibition will be on display from the 1st of June through to the 25th of August 2022. The exhibition features our own family of Artists; including Jenny Gunning’s fascinating range of Intaglio Etchings featuring her beautiful Aga Factory Collection, Liz Gunning’s incredible Earthenware and Raku pottery, and of course Dave Gunning’s extraordinary Etched Steel collection.

Our Featured Artists include Studio 99 and Nathalie Toplass. 

Studio 99

Studio 99 is a printmakers collective formed with a wide range of members belonging to the RBSA, RBA, and RE. The fascinating collection of work includes a range of etchings, collographs, and monoprints. Artists include Nicolas Logan, Ann Hackett, Diane Lewis-Aiello, Carol Meredith, Chris Salmon, John Davenport, Colin Spilbury, and Anthony Yates

Nathalie Toplass

We are delighted to feature Artist Nathalie Toplass in our Summer exhibition 2022. Nathalie work conveys the feelings and sense of pleasure she feels while being surrounded by nature, even the simplest of things stir emotions. She wants the viewer to have an experience that encompasses sensations beyond that of the image itself. Therefore the scale of her work is important. By enlarging the scale, the nature of the subject is intensified and enables the viewer to become surrounded by the beauty of the subject.

Our Gallery is open Tuesday to Friday from 10 am till 5 pm and Saturdays from 10 am till 3 pm. We look forward to seeing you!
