In an art gallery, each purchase is unique and so a 'one size fits all' approach to shipping doesn't always work.

Depending on your chosen piece, there are different ways we may delivery this to you.

Artworks can be delivered using Royal Mail, UPS, or specialist courier with the relevant level of insurance. The delivery fee will be calculated at the checkout and added to your total.

If you live closeby, we will arrange delivery direct to you, without the use of a courier.

You can also collect your artwork from the gallery. To opt for collection, click 'pick up' when you get to the check out.

If you have purchased artwork that is currently part of an exhibition, delivery will be arranged after the exhibition has ended.

If you have questions about delivery please contact us -
