Our beautiful fine art gallery and printmaking studio is located in the heart of Ironbridge. The attractive industrial brick and wood timber frame building, with a 40ft high ceiling, is the perfect home for our gallery. We are proud to be a lively hub for artists and art lovers alike.
With over forty years of experience, 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. 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!

Our Summer Exhibition, running from the 1st June through till the 31st August, featuring Photographer Carl Bennett and Assembledge Artist Edward Makenzie.
Carl Bennett has traveled extensively throughout Europe and the UK capturing the natural beauty and texture of abandoned decaying buildings that are slowly being reclaimed by nature. Bennetts work is thought-provoking, intriguing and a little haunting. For Bennett, photography has been a keen interest for many years but in more recent years he became drawn to the darker, almost macabre like imagery that these decaying buildings offer artistically.
International Artist Edward Mackenzie is absolutely fascinating. “I am a responder to things, objects for the most part, which is my media. Tubes of oil paint, brushes and old paintboxes often mean more to me than the art they are employed to make. I collect these and much more. In making art such material is my initial inspiration – responding to things I love – usually manufactured, often commonplace objects. I investigate and ‘play’ with whatever object I am working on and get to know the material in some depth. One could say I learn to speak its language and dance its dance.”
Also on display is a large selection of work from our stable of core Artists including beautiful two plate etchings by Jenny Gunning, exquisite Hares and bowls by Liz Gunning, Dave Gunning’s latest large pencil on paper collection, Paul Gooderhams display of incredible Pottery, beautifully Fused Glass by Greg Anston Race, Charcoals by Rod Pountney and Handmade sterling silver jewellery by Liz Simmons and Jo Mollart Highfield.
The Gallery is free of charge to the general public Tuesday to Friday 10am till 5pm and Saturday 10am till 3pm. For private appointments or for further information please contact us on 01952434033.
