What's Coming for the Rest of 2018!

What's Coming for the Rest of 2018!

As we draw towards the end of the Emerging Artists Exhibition we are starting to curate the next show, which will be the last formalised show of the year. This is centre around animal art with a focus on sculpture.

We have secured works from Simon Gudgeon, Louise McNaught, Jamel Akib, Nichola Theakston, Marion McConaghie, Laura Rich (drawings), Stephen Page, Fiona Rogers & Anup Shah, Ian Greensitt and many more. All of the above have produced special animal works that will accompany a series of talks.

New arrivals from Rose Eva, Laura Boswell, Anne-Sophie Gilloen and Thomas Joynes plus a fabulous discount offer from Simon Gudgeon. 

We are working on another new project in the gallery that will see us develop a new website with real time links to our stock. For this we will be asking for a little more data from you so that we send the right kind of information in the future. 

We will send out a mailchimp newsletter as soon as the system is finalised, hopefully towards the end of this week. We expect for the system to be live in 3 to 4 weeks with the website following shortly afterwards. 

What's New? Nearly Everything!

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!

We are delighted to have teamed up with the specialist piano tuners and renovators at The Piano Workshop and are now offering their completed projects for sale from the gallery. On top of that we will periodically be having a pianist come in and show off the pianos to their highest abilities!

The first event is on the 21st December and I'm sure a few Christmas carols will creep into the playlist. Drinks and snacks will be on offer whilst Robert Schmuck plays away on the 1928 fully restored Schiedmayer Boudoir Grand. 

SETTLED IN!

SETTLED IN!

It has been a head spinning few weeks since we made the decision to move the gallery. Five weeks from the point of signing the lease on 5 Market Place, Kirkbymoorside to opening the doors to a large new exhibition with 29 new makers! Meanwhile our plans for the stand at Cambridge Art Fair continued apace and we returned with quite a bit less work than we took. Now that that is over we can concentrate on the new gallery space which is proving to be a big hit with visitors and generally getting the seal of approval from the locals.

Emerging Potters Exhibition

Emerging Potters Exhibition

After many hours of study and consideration we have made our selections for the forthcoming Exhibition for Emerging Potters. We have a selection of 30 artists all new to Bils & Rye. We are delighted in the quality of the work submitted and it was no easy task cutting it down to a manageable level for our first event of this type.

There is still heaps of work to do to get the show ready, but in the meantime, here are a few images of the successful entrants.
