TOUCHWOOD Solihull has announced the opening of a prestigious art gallery, Aura Fine Art.
Opening its doors on last Saturday, Aura Fine Art brings together a diverse collection of original artwork and limited editions.
Owner Elizabeth Parnham worked for the largest art publisher in Europe before realising her dream of starting her own business.
She and her team of consultants believe that art should be available to all and aims to guide prospective buyers on works in which to invest.
Gallery Manager Bastien Da Silva, who has a background in luxury retailing said: “We’re very excited to reintroduce an art gallery back into Touchwood and be able to bring to Solihull a touch of local, as well as renowned artists to discover.”
Among the artists at the gallery is Nigel Cooke, who has used the streets of Solihull as inspiration for some of his work, Birmingham-born artist Gary Benfield and Dale Bowen from Staffordshire, who is well known for his harbour scenes.
Touchwood General Manager Tony Elvin, who was named Shopping Centre Manager of the Year in 2022, said: “We’re really excited to welcome Aura Fine Art, further enhancing our diverse offering at Touchwood.
“The centre is at 96% occupancy, which is higher than pre-pandemic. Solihull has proved to be more of a recession-proof location and we are always seeking to bring in new businesses.”
