About Us

Our Harrogate contemporary art gallery exhibits eye-catching Ceramics, Sculpture and Paintings. We leave prejudice at the doorstep and welcome all lovers of art, no matter what level of knowledge you may have. But, above all, we encourage you to discuss the art we have in our collection.  There is a definite hands-on policy where we encourage visitors to explore the tactile works with hands as well as eyes!

Got a question? Ask our expert team who makes the gallery the friendly and professional place it is. Our knowledge of each artist is extensive. This is because we tour the country and spend time getting to know the individuals behind the work. As a result of this, we prioritise personal investigation and individual narratives with a mission to create connections between art and collectors alike.  

 We talk, we deliberate and together we examine the methods employed by each artist to create their unique piece. We examine the context of the artists within contemporary culture and we even discuss the artist's likes, environment and lifestyle. By taking a more relaxed, hands-on approach, we simply help you fall in love with the art you admire. 

We are proud of our relaxed and welcoming gallery where you can expect to enjoy a wide variety of art. Our gallery is a space where anyone can purchase a piece of art, as an investment or simply because you love it. Our mission is simple; to connect passionate art buyers with quality pieces in an unpretentious and friendly way. 

We have developed a professional and friendly reputation as a result of a comfortable, straightforward approach to clients on every level. Our dedicated team work hard to ensure that the art you invest in is perfect for your home or workspace. 

Therefore, we offer home trials, allowing you to take the piece away to see how it looks in your space. And with our 28-day free returns policy, site visits with expert advice and our partnership with Art Money, we make art truly accessible for everyone. 

It really doesn’t matter what level of knowledge you have, there’s no need to know everything (or indeed anything) about art.  Through conversation and careful curation, we hope to improve on and impart our growing knowledge of modern ceramics, sculpture and paintings in an informal way.

Get in touch today or pop along to our gallery and speak to a member of our team. We can’t wait to meet you.
