About Us

We love art and we are serious about its importance in our culture and society. We also love that it enriches our lives, our homes and our relationships – and that everyone can access and own it if they want to. We are here to help with both. Axle Arts sells genuine and original artwork across media from artists with something to say, whether that be comment socially or politically, a journey into expression or simply a hedonistic exploration into materials. We don’t adhere to fashionable trends in art and we don’t support selling signed, numbered or hand finished reproduction giclée prints. We celebrate original art and the artists who make it, in all its rich diversity.

As a contemporary fine art gallery we exhibit online as well as by appointment. We hold open weekends once a month at Director Bridget Sterling's home, exhibiting new work from our artists (dates & times), and invite you to drop in for a chat and a cup of tea. Our artists work can also be seen at The Royal Crescent Hotel in Bath.

We are proud of our reputation for our professionalism and attention to detail and have a proven track record as both fine art specialists and international shipping agents. Our goal is to meet and exceed the expectations from all our customers.

If you’d like to stay in touch with us, you can subscribe to our monthly newsletter at the bottom of this page.

Client Testimonials

A warm and inviting welcome awaits. You feel like you are borrowing a human book on the artist, as to wander in is to want to know more.. and you can, as each (artist) is known by your host.
[Chris Lee, 2018]

Bridget is the ideal art gallery curator and dealer. Charming, of course, with a passion for art of different media. (She) is not only highly experienced with relevant expertise but honest, trustworthy and ethically sound, in our personal interactions over the past five years.
[Prof Barry Gilbertson, 2018]

Art to me is part of the journey of life; it's losing yourself in a painting or sculpture. Bridget understands each of her clients and the importance of art as nourishment in a society that at times forgets.
[Dr Melanie Stevens, 2018]

I am delighted with the picture. Quite a bold move to purchase without viewing but it has worked. Many thanks indeed for your facilitation and support.
[Jane Moffat, 2018]
