About usOnce known as Reuben Colley Fine Art, Colley Ison is an independent gallery set in the heart of Birmingham.
Our team proudly represent a carefully curated selection of local and world renowned artists. So, whether you're a collector, investor, or lover of art - we want to welcome you to Colley Ison Gallery.
Our HistoryReuben Colley Fine Art was founded by award-winning artist Reuben Colley in 2010. Having traded in Moseley for five years, the gallery moved in 2015 to a prestigious location on Colmore Row, in one of Birmingham’s fine Victorian buildings.
In 2020, while successfully weathering the disruption caused by the pandemic, the business celebrated its 10th anniversary. This milestone prompted a review of the past ten years and provided the opportunity to rebrand as Colley Ison Gallery.
The name Colley Ison is a homage to the gallery’s founder and Director, Reuben Colley and Gallery Director, Timothy Ison, who has fronted the business since its inception. Since including the word ‘Gallery’ in our title, Colley Ison has become a space where anyone can visit and enjoy fine art free of charge. So whether you're looking to buy art or simply view it, come and pay us a visit!
