Welcome to Martin's Framing & Gallery
You will find us in the Old Police Station in Baker Street, Abergavenny.
If you are in town, why not call in and browse at your leisure, everyone is given a warm welcome as Martin is happy to chat and share his experience of Art with his visitors. You have a friendly service from Tuesday to Saturday, 9:30 to 5:30.
Martin feels that the 'Art' experience should be enjoyed, whether you are looking for bespoke framing, advice and guidance on available originals and prints or even just taking in the pleasure of the paintings.
This is a direct contrast to many art galleries where the atmosphere can often be stuffy, formal and uninviting.
Martin's Framing & Gallery started when Martin Fletcher opened a bespoke picture framing business in 2005 at the Old Police Station Abergavenny adding a small gallery for local professional artists to exhibit their work. The framing side has gone from strength to strength due to high quality workmanship and friendly customer advice. So too has the gallery with more viewing space and a fresh new look this year.
Martin's aim was to create a gallery with a friendly atmosphere and high quality professional artwork from the local professional artists if possible. He wanted the local public to be able to look at (and be able to buy) top artwork without the need to travel.
Since opening, the gallery has become well known throughout the area and indeed the U.K. for exhibiting fine artwork including work from some of the top artists out of Scotland, The Midlands, London and our very own Wales such as Goff Danter, Haydn Gear, Peter Seabourne, Pembrokeshire Artist Chris Prosser and John Knapp Fisher. You will find some rare one off originals by some collectable artists plus limited edition Giclee prints and more besides.
One of the first artists that exhibited at the gallery was Goff Danter who foresaw the potential of the gallery from the beginning. Martin and Goff became firm friends, with Martin becoming Goff's agent. Goff has gone from strength to strength and his original work is collected throughout the world.
The gallery is now established as one that exhibits some of the best artwork found in Monmouthshire or indeed South Wales. The only way to verify this claim is to pay us a visit. The aim of the gallery is to bring art to our customers from throughout the UK and further afield.
So come and have a look at our ever-changing display of Artwork - you'll always get a warm welcome from Martin.
RARE ORIGINAL PAINTINGS ALWAYS AVAILABLE.
