About Westgate Fine Art
" Our remit at Westgate Fine Art is to provide art and design-led products with quality and value for money "
Westgate Fine Art started in November 1986.
Starting out as a framing and print shop, there has been a gradual progression from framing to include the retailing of art and design led products.
Framing is a key side of the business, as we offer a complete bespoke service to the discerning private individual through to corporate clients. It also allows us to offer our artists a framing service which is current with interior trends, whilst presenting their art work at its most complimentary.
The Gallery now offers original paintings, sculpture, jewellery, design products and craft-based homeware.
We support our artists; allowing them to utilise the Gallery space for solo exhibitions throughout the calendar. For details of these events, please check our news page or telephone for more details.
Across our website you will find a wide range of products including:
Original Art - By Roz Bell, Julia Burns of Red Hen Originals, Ann Kilvington, David Winfield, Robert Heindel, A J Callan, Ken Hammond, Bernie Wisniewski, Ian Layton, Ruby Keller, Diana Bourne Arton and Karen Baron.

Ian Peacock- Owner/Founder
Ian Peacock launched Westgate Fine Art in November 1986.
Having qualified as an engineer, an interest in photography brought him into contact with the art world.
Starting at 8 Westgate, the shop outgrew the premises and in 1992 Ian bought the current premises at 12 Westgate. He has now successfully been in business for 27 years and continues to grow and develop the business and range.
Ian imports mouldings from Spain and Italy where artisan design and craftsmanship are paramount. This is reflected in his ethos to his clients. Style and design are equally important for the products that he sources and retails.
