Kentmere House Gallery, close to the centre of York, exhibits exciting
and original work by professional living artists from Yorkshire
and further afield.
Nationally-known artists are shown alongside talented newcomers,
a deliberate policy of giving encouragement to the latter and enabling
purchasers to back their own judgements.
Some of the artists on permanent display are Jack
Hellewell, John Thornton,
Tessa Newcomb, Susan
Greenwood, Keith Roper, Freya Horsley, Anne Kilvington, Elaine Turnbull & Alfred Huckett.
The gallery is owned by Ann and David Petherick. Ann moved to York from Suffolk in 1979 and was amazed to find that there was no contemporary gallery. She therefore set up Grape Lane Gallery with two partners in 1984. Having visited galleries in private houses in other parts of the country she was attracted to the idea and Kentmere House was chosen for the purpose. The gallery opened here in 1991.
As the gallery is our home you are welcome to visit anytime, with just a phone call in advance to check.
Otherwise every Thursday evening, 6-9pm
And the first weekend of every month, 11am-5pm each day.
