We help you buy the art you love.


Founded in 1997...

... by Brian & Connie Herring, Rostra Gallery quickly established a reputation for showcasing high quality, accessible art in a relaxed and friendly environment in the heart of Bath.

Owned and run by Emma Birts since 2006, the gallery continues to excel at exhibiting an exciting range of contemporary art by both established and emerging artists. After 20 years on George Street, 2017 saw a move to new premises amongst the independent shops of Margarets Buildings before the business developed online and via pop-up venues in early 2019. 

Dedicated to showing affordable, contemporary artworks that suit all budgets Rostra Gallery is the exclusive supplier of CCA prints in the Bath area. The gallery specialises in limited edition prints alongside original paintings, sculpture, ceramics, craft, papercut and artisan jewellery from a wide variety of local artists.

Limited Edition Prints - our speciality!

Buying original limited edition prints is one of the best ways of acquiring modern art at affordable prices.

Original prints are not reproductions, they are original works of art conceived and created by an artist who is deliberately using the chosen medium to create an effect that could not be achieved by any other process.

Original Limited Edition Prints are a great way to start an art collection or portfolio. The gallery’s selection includes original work by well known artists, many of which are held in public collections.
