The 10th June sees many of Kirkbymoorside's wonderful gardens open to the public. We have been invited to join in this year placing some of the larger sculptures in gardens around the town. Key is the Quaker Meeting House garden which will see Helen Sinclair's sculpture in a setting away from the gallery for the first time. We are massively excited by the event!
Gardens open from 11:00 to 17:00 and the gallery will also be open for the day with a few of us on hand to discuss the sculptures and walk around the gardens if required.
Sadly, our version of Wednesday's Child won't be there as it's off to York for a trial on Monday. This is part of the service we offer, bringing work to your home and garden so you can really envisage who it will look before committing to a purchase.
We manage commission work too, working with clients and artists to reach a result that is satisfactory to all parties. This can include early planning for gardens in tandem with your garden designers or as additions to schemes already in place. We love sourcing the right items for clients.
June sees the Slice of Yorkshire exhibition continue, thereafter we have the more usual open call exhibition until September. A lot of new arrivals are due towards the end of June in time for the Summer Show opening on the 7th July. This will include the new Home and Utility Room which will feature affordable handmade items from around the UK. Initially it is mostly ceramics with a view to adding chopping boards, cutlery, kitchen knives and much more in the future along with linocuts, Japanese Woodblock and other prints to complement. We do hope you'll join us for a G&T or a Pimms on the 10th June or the 7th July!
