A bit of background – Axle Arts is very much defined by Director Bridget Sterling, who came to Bath in 2008 to undertake post graduate studies in fine art at Bath Spa University after running her own artistic practice in London for a number of years. After graduating, Bridget worked with a number of well-respected galleries in the area before joining Bath Contemporary. Over six years, the gallery gained a respected reputation in the industry under her leadership, not only for the quality of artists exhibited, but also for its thoughtfully curated exhibitions. Alongside the commercial aspect of the business, the gallery also ran a successful education programme for four years, which Bridget set up in conjunction with Bath Spa University.
Axle Arts – was born in 2017 in response to what Bridget felt was a changing art market with a rapidly growing e-commerce presence. The aim was to build a website that could provide a smooth and enjoyable shopping experience with pre-calculated, worldwide shipping costs on as many of the artworks as possible. Axlearts.com has achieved that, offering clear, reliable and professional P&P costs, prior to purchasing. Where a cost is not displayed, we will source one for you.
100% satisfaction or refund – we promise that if, on receiving your artwork, you feel it doesn’t sit well in the setting intended, we will refund you fully (please read our shipping terms and conditions for more information). We want you to feel 100% happy with the relationship we believe you are embarking on, since we think a piece of artwork should be for life, not just Christmas…!
Visitors welcome by appointment – Bridget exhibits at her home in Bath, welcoming visitors by appointment to view artwork in the comfort of an informal and relaxed setting. She also exhibits collaboratively, and relevant viewings may also be arranged at Tasburgh House Hotel and The Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa, Bath.
