About Ironbridge Fine Arts & Framing
Ironbridge Fine Arts & Framing is a family run business situated in the picturesque Shropshire town of Ironbridge. We have a beautiful gallery space, print workshop, rentable artist studio space and a framing workshop. Our gallery is open to the public and houses one of the largest collections of work from Shropshire’s most talented artists.
Ironbridge Fine Arts & Framing was founded to be a local hub of art lovers and enthusiasts and to incorporate the local heritage, of which we are so proud, into our artwork. At the heart of Ironbridge Fine Art & Framing is the Gunning family – Jenny Gunning and Sarah Morris and their parents Liz and Dave Gunning
Dave and Liz Gunning founded Gunning Arts Limited in the 1980s. This now runs alongside Ironbridge Fine Arts & Framing. Dave Gunning is a prolific artist with artwork in many prestigious collections across the world including 110 etchings in Her Majesty the Queen’s private collection and two large drawings hanging in the Houses of Parliament. He has had more than 70 one-man shows and has many exhibitions booked for years to come. He creates his artwork, hand builds the printing presses and works with his two daughters, Jenny and Sarah, who run the gallery in Ironbridge.
Jenny graduated from Cheltenham and Gloucester University in 2004 and has a degree in Specialist Printmaking. Upon leaving university, Jenny set up her own business which evolved into Ironbridge Fine Arts & Framing and has always run alongside Gunning Arts Limited. Jenny has extensive experience in many forms of printmaking and her passion for printmaking and etching inspires all who meet her. Jenny takes after her father and is a prolific printmaker in her own right. She has had many one-woman and, with her father, two-person shows. She continues to add to her large collection of work.
Ironbridge Fine Arts and Framing are proud to be a Fine Art Trade Guild Art Sure Member. Sarah Morris works with customers to provide Giclee printing and ArtSure print registration, high resolution scanning (up to 12800 dpi), digital editing, printing and limited print registration. Sarah is also currently training for her Guild Commended framing qualification.
Liz Gunning is the ceramicist of the gallery, creating incredible works of art and functional ware as well as offering workshops and one-to-one tuition. She has a beautiful pottery studio and creates the most wonderful fine art sculptures and ceramics. Liz’s hares are her trademark and she thrives on making and selling in the Ironbridge Gorge. Liz is also a qualified spiritual healer, who works alongside the College of Healing. She offers counselling and healing sessions and many art workshops based around pottery and therapy.
As a family who live and work in this beautiful part of Shropshire we continue to create and love everything we do.
We look forward to seeing you all.
