Founded in 1979, Beaux Arts is the longest established commercial gallery in Bath and is the sister gallery to Beaux Arts in Mayfair. You can find it in a small street adjacent to Bath Abbey in a listed Georgian building, and the gallery specialises in the very best in contemporary painting, sculpture and studio ceramics.
Works by well-known artists of the 20th century such as Dame Elisabeth Frink and Sir Terry Frost rub shoulders with new luminaries like Nathan Ford, Helen Simmonds and Anna Gillespie.
Beaux Arts has a reputation for curating exciting exhibitions. Artists’ work is given plenty of wall-space, and with its high ceilings and numerous rooms and alcoves to explore, the gallery is light, airy and an ideal environment to enjoy beautiful and thought-provoking works of art.
The line-up for autumn features Wiltshire painter Helen Simmonds. Her exquisite still-life paintings are eagerly awaited following two previous completely sold-out exhibitions with Beaux Arts. Christopher Marvell’s naive bronze sculptures also make a welcome return. In addition, and for the first time, the gallery features the brilliant peat-inspired ceramics of Patricia Shone.
