The UK’s leading fine art retailer, Castle Fine Art, unveiled its biggest gallery last Wednesday in the heart of the Midlands. The brand new gallery opened to the public on Saturday 8 June, in a stunning 6,000 sq ft space at the Mailbox, Birmingham showcasing the best contemporary artists from around the world.
Adding a splash of colour to the designer destination, the new-look Castle Fine Art is the latest in the company’s network of 38 galleries across the UK. Four times the size of the current Mailbox gallery, it will be home to some of the biggest names in art; from Bob Dylan, Ronnie Wood and Lorenzo Quinn, to Marvel, Billy Connolly and pioneer of the Pop Art movement, James Francis Gill.
Living by the business’ ethos of ‘Your World, Our Art®’, making art accessible to all, the brand new Mailbox gallery will play host to headline-grabbing collection launches and welcome worldwide names for personal appearances and events.
Speaking about the new gallery, Ian Weatherby-Blythe, group managing director of Castle Fine Art and Washington Green, said: “I cannot believe we have now unveiled our amazing new gallery space at the Mailbox. It has taken many months of planning to create the perfect experience and place to showcase our signature artists and introduce you to the best original and limited edition fine art.
“The new gallery really makes a statement about our direction as a business; more than two decades on and we are still dedicated to finding and presenting the best artists in the world. The Mailbox has been a fantastic home to us and now, with such an impressive homewares offer, we can’t think of anywhere better to bring our art into your world.”
Melanie Taylor, head of retailer relations at Milligan, joint owners of the Mailbox, said: “Castle Fine Art’s excellent range of exciting artists and beautiful artworks are perfectly in tune with the Mailbox’s discerning customer base. We’ve enjoyed a wonderful relationship with Castle Fine Art over the past decade and are delighted to support them as they continue to grow their business at the Mailbox.”
