Reg and Patricia Singh opened Wills Lane Gallery in St. Ives in 1971, representing and exhibiting artists from St. Ives School, including solo shows with Roger Hilton, Patrick Heron and Sir Terry Frost. The gallery represented and exhibited leading figures of British Modernism and the St. Ives School, including Barbara Hepworth, Elisabeth Frink, John Bellany, Bryan Pearce, Mary Fedden and William Scott.

Beaux Arts continues to represent the estates of Sir Terry Frost, Paul Mount and Elisabeth Frink.

The Singh’s opened Beaux Arts Bath in 1979, and opened Beaux Arts London on Cork Street in 1995, later moving to Maddox Street, Mayfair. The work of the artists that Wills Lane Gallery represented continues to form a core of Beaux Arts Bath and London’s collections.


Beaux Arts Bath is a contemporary art gallery showing paintings, sculpture and ceramics. Founded in 1979, it is the longest established independent gallery in Bath. Situated in a listed Georgian building on York Street, it is adjacent to the Abbey and the Roman Baths, in the centre of historic Bath.

The gallery is dedicated to exhibiting and promoting a wide range of established and up and coming artists through a varied programme of eight annual solo and group exhibitions, as well as exhibiting at leading UK Art Fairs.

Among the contemporary painters and sculptors we represent are Nathan Ford, Beth Carter, Anna Gillespie, Helen Simmonds and Simon Allen. Beaux Arts Bath is renowned for representing leading studio ceramicists, including the work of John Maltby, Akiko Hirai, Adam Buick and Jack Doherty.

Beaux Arts buys and consigns Modern British and Contemporary works of art.  Please contact the gallery for details of commission rates.
