Bils & Rye Harrogate | Saturday, 08. August 2020
About this Event
Bringing Fine Art Paintings by some of the UK's best painters, printmakers and mixed media artists and complemented with breathtaking sculpture and fabulous ceramics.
A reputation for 3d works has been created over the past eight years, firstly in Nunnington and then in Kirkbymoorside. Relocating to Harrogate had been on the cards for a few years following great success at the HIVE art fair in 2016. The gallery continued to grow despite BREXIT and the current COVID-19 crisis.
The team at Bils & Rye believe we bring something new and exciting to Harrogate that will complement the existing galleries. We were delighted to learn of the confirmation that Messums (of Cork Street and Wiltshire) will be a permanent fixture in the town. Here's to the recreation of the high street for bespoke, quality retailers!
In line with many other businesses, to protect staff and visitors, we will be operating an appointment system for all visitors. We can accommodate up to 4 people at anyone time and ask that you use the hand santisers provided. Gloves and masks are available, although we do strongly suggest you bring your own.
We have always run the business with the view that visitors should be able to interact with the objects on display. This obviously causes a problem with cross contamination. We therefore ask that we discuss the works and allow staff to move them to a location where there can be seen in different lights. Then, if all parties agree, touching of objects is allowed. We will then remove the works from display until cleaned for further inspection should they not be purchased.
