A Few Ideas! Part One

A Few Ideas! Part One

You may have seen we recently went on our travels to collect lots of lovely new things. We had 30 studio visits in 5 days, covered nearly 1500 miles and came back barely able to speak! Here are a few hints of the work that arrived and it within the newly renovated gallery space.

We have one more trip to do before Christmas with new works from Jane Human, Karen Stamper, Nichola Theakston amongst others! Deliveries continue to arrive weekly as well with Laura Rich's large works and Darrell Evanes works arriving this week.

We are delighted to have welcomed Layla Khoo to the team this year as our gallery mananger, a role she has jumped into with gusto! Not that she has that much time with her MA at Sunderland ongoing, her own ceramics works and now the owner of the old HSBC in Kirkbymoorside. This may well become much needed creative spaces for local artists along with a new business with Mrs Bils & Rye that they launched recently (more about that in the next instalment!). We have some of Layla's scorched wooden works in the gallery at the moment (see below).

Delighted to announce we have six wonderful driftwood sculptures by the very talented and much copied Kirsty Elson. Her work has achieved a vast following over the last few years and it has taken us all of two years to secure these six pieces. Following a request from Kirsty, these pieces will not be available online but just to visitors to the gallery.
