York and Yorkshire-based artists fill the walls of this bright, inviting gallery, alongside a varied selection of national and international art. Oils, pastels, watercolours and acrylics catch the eye, alongside foundry-cast bronze sculptures and original ceramics. The majority of the work is original.

If you’re looking for an imaginative gift, you can also choose from a range of affordable high-quality original jewellery. Most of it is silver, with some great pearl pieces, and much of the selection is hand-crafted by local artists. There’s also an eclectic selection of cards.

Owner Michael Hourston champions both established and emerging talent and highlights a featured artist every month. He is happy to chat about the pieces on show and help you find the ideal artwork for your space. Interest-free payment and artwork lease schemes are available. A bespoke framing service, including hand-painted frames, is also offered.
