There have been some close calls over the last three years as we have searched extensively for a new home for the gallery. Nothing really nailed the look we were after, a grown-up version of the space we occupy at Nunnington Studios. Strangely a building we pass daily almost that has been empty since it closed as a public house back in 2010 caught our eye. In less than a month we have negotiated (hard) and signed a lease.
The moving process is already underway, with the new gallery space being finished to the look we desire, with the required security embellishments. Meanwhile I am at the old space, working away as normal plus packing away a number of items everyday. Business goes on, just with more boxes than we'd really like adorning the gallery!
So from the 3rd September 2016, Kirkbymoorside will be our new home with three quite different rooms to show the high end sculptures, ceramics and paintings plus the debut of the odd grand piano or two from time to time! We like to do things differently!
We would like to thank one and all who have made the effort to come to Nunnington Studios over the three and a half years we have been here. It will be emotional leaving our roots as a business! The gallery at Nunnington Studios closes on the 28th August 2016 at 17:00 for a final time. We will spend the following week curating in the new Emerging Potters Exhibition and all the other pieces. We are expected around 400 new pieces for the opening.
The opening will feature some fizz as normal and some snacks, nothing too grand but it'll keep the wolf from the door!
Hope to see you at:
5 Market Place, Kirkbymoorside, York, North Yorkshire, YO62 6AB
in the near future.
We are also joined by four new painters for the opening of the new space.
