Our Fine Art Gallery & Printmaking Studio

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 here at Ironbridge Fine Arts & Framing.

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. 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.

Current Exhibition

Ironbridge Fine Arts Winter Exhibition

Ironbridge Fine Arts are very excited about the launch of our Spring Exhibition.  The exhibition will run until 28th May and our normal opening times are Tue-Fri, 10am-5pm and Sat 10am-3pm.

 

New to the gallery are Full Circle; an artistic collaboration between Emma Bowater and James Millichamp… ‘We have always shared a fascination for the built environment, and particularly urban decay and dereliction. Over the past two years we have been working together to exploit this theme through various processes, cross-pollinating and stimulating each other’s practice. We endeavor to capture the atmosphere of a space or object, alluding to the history lost through the process of decay. A disused building can act as a symbol for the contemporaneous nature of man’s achievements, or as a metaphor for emotional abandonment. Through the works, we seek to document the vacant and transient environments of architecture, spaces and things. Empty spaces, devoid of human life, freeze and reaffirm human existence. Detailing remaining relics of human presence, the images emphasise a sense of isolation and abandonment; echoing the emotional anxiety of absence.’

 

We are also pleased to introduce printmaker Jane Davarian… Janes work is a beautiful collection of framed and mounted Lino prints influenced by Jane’s passion for travel, culture, and her passion for mythology. “I’m inspired by memories, people, and places, from the Devon and Dorset countryside to far-off places. My use of patterns and designs found in architecture and textiles are integral to my work and reflect the places I have visited. History, stories, and mythology are a rich resource and influence my ideas which are connected to my own travel experiences and cultures rich in indigenous art. I print mainly in monochrome because it gives me strong images and clarity of fine detail and reflects both simple and complex experiences.”

Returning to the Gallery… We are pleased to announce the return of Liz Sommerville to Ironbridge Fine Arts Gallery. Her beautiful hand-embellished Lino Prints once again fill our Gallery with incredible detail and colour.

 

We will have a rich plethora of work on display from our longstanding core Artists including Liz Gunning’s beautiful range of Earthenware and Raku Pottery, Aquatints by Diana Wayne, Pottery by Paul Gooderham and new collections of Fused glasswork by Janice Locker, Greg Anston Race, Geraldine McGlouchlin. There is an incredible display of Sterling Silver Jewellery by Liz Simmons and Jo Mollart-Highfield. Last but by no means least, Anna Pearson continues to produce incredible Tarraiums which can be found throughout the Gallery not only on plinths but handing from the beams!

With such a huge array of local and international Artists, we truly have something to suit all tastes and budgets.
