Carnes Fine Art was established in 2011. We are proud to be an independent art gallery, specialising in original paintings, sculptures and works on paper.  The gallery is located at Cedar Farm in the rural and beautiful setting of Mawdesley, Lancashire.

We collaborate directly with artists locally and across the UK.  In our view this close working, better enables us to convey a true understanding of the artist, their journey and inspiration behind their works. We offer a broad range of original works of art, from contemporary to traditional, with a focus on landscapes, still life, figurative, wildlife and equine pieces.  We are pleased to offer latest works by some of the country’s leading contemporary artists in addition to well established Lancashire artists; please see ‘Artists page’ for a comprehensive list.

We have particular expertise and appreciation of early to mid 20th century British and French works of art. For older pieces, we follow a strict criteria with condition, visual composition, provenance, desirability and quality front of mind. Carnes Fine Art collection is frequently updated and can be viewed on this website  (see ‘Collections page’ for defined categories) and at the gallery. 

We are incredibly passionate about art and what our business represents. A core focus of the business is to deliver exceptional service to our customers and build long lasting collaborations with the artists.  We are pleased to offer a range of additional services including an art consultation service, so if you are looking to add a particular piece to your collection please do not hesitate to contact us, we will be more than happy to assist.
