Gala Fine Art and our artists

Gala Fine Art is an online contemporary art gallery run by Kate Bignold in Bristol. It represents an exciting group of emerging, mid-career and established British and international fine artists, almost all of whom are painters selected for their distinctive creative styles. Some combine painting with other processes, such as screen-printing, collage, photography and drawing; others use unusual techniques like printing with fabric, photographic transfer and pouring and tipping paint over the canvas. All of them place great importance on colour, whether their work is bold and vibrant or subtle and muted.

Gala Fine Art’s artists exhibit regularly in solo and group shows, including major juried exhibitions such as the Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition in London and the Annual Open Exhibition at the Royal West of England Academy in Bristol, England’s only regional Royal Academy of Art. They win or are shortlisted for a host of prestigious art awards, including the BP Portrait Award, the Columbia Threadneedle Prize for Figurative Art and the Sunny International Art Prize.


Art fairs

Gala Fine Art takes its artists’ work to several art fairs around the UK each year (currently London, Edinburgh, Manchester, Bristol and Cheltenham – further details on the Events page).
