Three quick films for those who haven't yet managed to get to the gallery since we reopened on the 2nd September. There will be some professionally shot images and films coming soon. It's an eclectic mix as ever but we think the strongest show of work by such a talented group of artists that we have ever shown. If you can't visit please do get in contact me more films of specific areas of the gallery!
2015 proved to be the year of sculpture in the gallery, with us finding new homes for more pieces than previous years. The supply has helped no end with top end sculptors asking to exhibit at the gallery and 2016 is the year we will spend more resources on bringing in more contemporary works from around the UK.
Here our a few of our picks for 2016 including a rather special new arrival!
Back in 2012 Kate and I were approached to take over a business in Helmsley, we immediately set out to find a bit more about the town and Bils & Rye was born! A quick Wikipedia search revealed that Helmsley is where the two valleys of Bilsdale and Ryedale meet. Kate shortened them to Bils & Rye and we registered the name.
