how to buy art

Four Weeks and Counting!

Four Weeks and Counting!

This week I've been planning the road trip to collect from far and wide. Thankfully some lovely makers are bringing their wares to us, although the trek couldn't take much more in. I'm off to Nottingham, Leicester, London, Canterbury, Lewes, Farnham, Mere, Devon/Cornwall border. Two other trips are happening too, the Lake District and Lincoln!

Meanwhile our set designers are hard at work making something very special for the stand. We are delighted with their vision and hope you will be too.

If you're not used to going into galleries or buying art it can be a bit of a scary prospect, intimidating even and part of our ethos at Bils & Rye came about in response to this, ‘Taking the Intimidating Aspect Out of Art’.

Art really is in the eye of the beholder, and as such, no one option of it is right or wrong.  It comes down to personal taste and that is exactly how it should be approached when you consider purchasing anything.

Dispelling the Myth

 

Here at Bils & Rye we like to do things a little differently.   Our ethos is based on the ethical treatment of our artists and our customers alike. 

 

We love to talk!  Discussions about art, about life are common occurrences in the gallery and often become conversations that span many topics, and frequently go off on tangents.  In fact, we love people, and talking, as much as we love art.  So we aim to be as approachable and honest as we possibly can.

There are always inevitably a few that smart a little and can be tricky to answer.  Let’s face it; galleries haven’t had the best of reputations in the past… elitist, unwelcoming, aloof, greedy…  The last one, that is the hardest one to dispel.
