If you’re looking to purchase a very special gift this Christmas, one that will last a lifetime, then an original painting or sculpture might just be the thing.

Since its inception 26 years ago, the Fairfax Gallery has maintained a high standard of artists across its successful portfolio, which are housed in both its Tunbridge Wells and Burnham Market galleries. Over 1000 prospective artists approach the galleries each year, so you can view an ever-changing vast selection of original art.

As one of the longest established businesses of The Pantiles Tunbridge Wells, you can expect a personable service, within a relaxed environment, in which to admire and purchase a high standard of original contemporary work. It can be difficult to visualise how a piece of art will look and feel within your home and so the ability to take paintings, on loan to experience in situ, before making a final decision is an invaluable service that the gallery offer.

Many esteemed artists have exhibited at the Fairfax Gallery over the years including, Mary Jane Ansell and other winners and finalists of the BP Portrait Award, Shaun Ferguson former winner of the Discerning Eye New Discovery Prize and Saatchi Award winner Barry Wilson, who joined Fairfax more recently. You will find a multitude of work by emerging artist from the UK and beyond housed within its walls, everything from landscapes to figurative, abstract to contemporary media and sculpture for both the home and garden.
