Please note that the new gallery in Kirkbymoorside is open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10:00 to 17:00. We are open on Wednesdays and Sundays by prior appointment.

Gallery Reopens on 2nd September 2017

“Due to the invasive nature of the current renovations we have taken the decision to close to visitors except by appointment. We are currently upgrading lights and displays in one of the rooms and due to a lack of space we are using the other two rooms for storage! You are welcome to knock on the door and brave the dust and messy displays! We hope to reopen in 7 to 10 days."

20th July 2017
"Due to the adverse weather, progress has been slower than anticipated and our opening will therefore be delayed. We are planning a grand re-opening event for the 2nd September 2017 but hope to be open prior to that. Pre-booked private views are still available but please be aware that the gallery is neither cleaned to the usual standard or curated in any way at all! We will be in the building most days and are happy to take intrepid visitors who don't mind an amount of chaos!"

A Unique Gallery specialising in Modern British Ceramics, Sculpture and Paintings

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.

From the outset, Kate & Nick Bentley strived to bring work of the highest quality to the original Nunnington Studios gallery. From September 2016, having relocated to Kirkbymoorside, the couple continue to improve the offering with world class sculptors, internationally renowned painters and one of the finest display of modern British ceramics available in Great Britain. 

Despite being filled with art, there's no pretensions here, everyone has a valid opinion!

Moving to Kirkbymoorside has been questioned by many, we think it is a great decision based on the location, the building and the ease of access. Kirkby, as it’s known locally, is the Gateway to the North Yorks Moors and a pleasant drive from the tourist towns of York, Scarborough and Whitby.

It is definitely worth popping in to see the new gallery, which has afforded us additional space whilst retaining many characteristics of the Nunnington Studios gallery and adding lots of light.
