Fine Art AwardTowngate Art Group is proud to have to award wining areas within its business, between 3 members of its staff. A total of 6 awards have been collected though the years, with numerous finalist pieces as as well.

The awards represent the attention to detail and skill of the winners on a national perspective. Each award represents hours of time spent thinking about how to best display the artwork. For the framing its a combination of looking at the artwork and deciding the best colour combinations, mount colours, textures and cut designs. From the printing perspective its also a case of looking at the artwork and deciding the best materials/print media to use, whilst also adjusting the image to bring the most detail and colour diversity from it.
