An inspiring art gallery in the heart of North Yorkshire exhibiting eye-catching contemporary sculpture and exquisite ceramics from some of the UK’s finest artists and makers. One of our main objectives is to make sculpture and ceramics far more accessible. We, therefore, practice a hands on approach to the works we have on display encouraging visitor interaction whilst discussing the processes used in their creation.

Set in one of North Yorkshires most picturesque villages, Bils & Rye specialise in ceramics and sculpture from over 150 established and emerging British artists and designers, making it one of the largest collections of ceramics in the North. There are normally 40 ceramicists on show, enhanced with paintings and sculpture from another 10 to 20 artists.

We continue to evolve the gallery space and web site with the aim of becoming the place to find modern British and International ceramics, sculpture and paintings.
