Last weekend saw the opening of the much anticipated A Slice of Yorkshire exhibition. A well attended event on the Saturday marked the start of the show, with much nervousness abounding as work was delivered right up to an hour before opening!

The show will evolve as works are released to buyers on the day and we have a few surprises lined up for the coming three months. Key highlights are securing a small offering from award winning James Oughtibridge (pictured above) and new works by Brendan Hesmondhalgh who elected to withdraw from Chelsea Flower Show which resulted in his new body of work where he incorporates metal into his ceramic sculptures joining the Yorkshire exhibition.

We are also delighted to have some new works by Rebecca Appleby on her return to the gallery for the first time since we relocated to Kirkbymoorside. We also have four of her abstract paintings, which work so well in tandem with her ceramic sculptures.

More highlights include David Mayne joining the gallery, the arrival of Clare Maria Wood's first batch of abstract paintings which fill the Piano Room's walls to perfection and Albert Montserrat supplying the first batch of Mini Vessels which proved so popular on the opening day that we have already reordered more!
