New Displays and Big Plans for 2016

New Displays and Big Plans for 2016

2015 was an fantastic year of change for us. We welcomed many more visitors to the gallery and had a fabulous time at our first art fair. HIVE in Harrogate was a hard graft, getting all the works together, we learned many lessons. We had a great time and thank you to all who attended. We have taken stands at Cambridge and Edinburgh Art Fairs for 2016 and considering a couple of other options.

We have also undertaken a big change around in the gallery with a lot less work on display, hopefully making it a little more coherent and easier on the eye! We have a lot more sculpture for 2016, kicking off the year with a major coup of securing work from Simon Gudgeon. Born and bred in Ryedale, Simon went on to become a solicitor before converting to sculpting. His works are in international and Royal collections.

Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year!

Christmas is almost upon us once again! All of the team at Bils & Rye would like to thank all of our customers, visitors and artists for their support this year. It has been a terrific year despite lower visitor numbers to the village. 

We have a host of plans being prepared for 2016 including more shows away from Nunnington. We will endeavour to keep increasing the quality of work on display particularly in the ceramics and sculpture departments.
