Big Sky Fine Art is an independent UK company owned and managed by Jane and Barrie Jones. It operates as an online gallery, direct from this website, and from a conventional bricks and mortar commercial art gallery in South Wales. Big Sky Fine Art has hosted many exhibitions at various locations around the UK and promoted some of the best contemporary artists in the country.
Our aim is always to showcase and supply good quality art of in a way that is accessible and unpretentious. Unlike many galleries, we deal only in original works, not prints or any other form of reproduction, so every piece is unique. For us that is what makes art really special in peoples lives. On the website we show high quality photographs to show you every detail of the artwork and its presentation and if you want to see a painting in person, we can generally arrange that.
It is the actual artist that makes a painting special, and often valuable, so we feel it is important to know about who they are (or were) and how they lived their lives. So, we thoroughly research all the artists whose works we offer and provide a comprehensive biography for each, so you can read about their lives and their works. Some of their stories are fascinating and you can sense how they are part of the cultural heritage of their countries and regions.
Our inventory is somewhat eclectic in nature and regularly updated. On the website you will discover works that are more usually featured in fashionable City galleries, but – please compare prices - without the fashionable price tags. We can be extremely competitive and pass on this benefit direct to our customers.
Unlike many galleries our collection is all in stock and available to purchase online; prices are clearly shown, and the process is straightforward and very secure. All pictures are sold framed, unless stated otherwise, and all aspects of the artwork and its frame are available as high-resolution photographs. If you wish to contact us direct and make an offer for a particular piece, we are always happy to talk.
The physical gallery, The Big Sky Gallery, is located at The Old Chapel, Twyn Square, Usk, Monmouthshire, NP15 1BH. Tel 01291 672738. Usk is a lovely picturesque town, with plenty of free parking, and well worth a visit.
