Burford Affordable Art Gallery
Our rather lovely art gallery at Burford Garden Company offers a curated collection of affordable, vibrant, original paintings and sculptures by artists and craftspeople from across the country, but mainly from the Cotswolds and neighbouring counties.
Beautiful items for the home and garden have always been Burford's raison d'être and we have always sought out talented young designers and artists when selling products for our store. Our founder and Chairman, Nigel Johnson, has a Master's degree in Art, and with this longstanding passion it seemed fitting to extend the Burford offering to include unique works of art.
Under Nigel's personal curation, our gallery includes highlight works from artists such as the Oxfordshire-based Christopher Townsend, whose beautifully graceful tree sculptures, forged from iron, are very popular and highly collectable . On the painting side we work closely with renowned Cotswold landscape painter Rupert Aker, who exhibits an extensive collection with us. Rupert recently spearheaded our inaugural 'Celebrating the Cotswold Poets' exhibition, with a series of original works inspired by the poet Laurie Lee, who lived locally in the Slad Valley, the setting for his world-famous Cider with Rosie.
Our current collection includes the following artists, to name just a few:
Rupert Aker | Linda Baillie | Michael Bell | Brian Britton | Caroline Chappell | Izzy Collins | Peter Davis | Rachel Ducker | Gerry Dudgeon | Mary Edwards | Nicki Gwynn-Jones | Pamela Harrison | Steve Mansfield | Jude McKenna | Miranda Michels | Katharine Miller | Plum Neasmith | Chris Rothero | Christopher Townsend | Jane Tricker | Jane Vaux | Richard Williams | Lisa Wisdom | Suzy Wright | Sally Wyatt
