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!

Introducing Jane Human

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 York 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.
