About village gallery
We sell a great selection of antique, less-old and new art, craft, ceramics, glass, jewellery, sculpture
and silver, including Lalique, Royal Crown Derby, Royal Worcester and Scottish Silver.
We regularly showcase the work of contemporary artists including Edward Waites,
Rebecca Mason, Malcolm Ludvigsen, Narissa Mather and Ralph Shuttleworth. The gallery also
hosts selling exhibitions of art – both 2D and 3D - by local artists. These run back-to-back, each
lasting for around six weeks.
Current selling exhibition
Our current exhibition features the work of York artist Robin Grover-
Jacques. Robin’s work is inspired by the emotions evoked through his
interactions with the landscape and the indefatigable natural forces of
weather upon it. He finds it essential that he first walks the landscape to
absorb all its elements and view how these natural elements interact and
influence its mood and power, from bright still days to the harshness of a
winter storm, lashing out upon the weathered hills and moorlands.
New to village gallery
Christmas. There, we’ve said it, the “C” word. But it will soon be rushing towards us all. Every
year, Lalique release a new/different Christmas decoration. This year the
design, which is available in clear and red crystal, features swallows
(Hirondelles). Swallows have been used in Lalique designs ever since the
very early days, something Lalique have been celebrating this year with
the introduction of a number of new pieces, some limited editions,
including a new vase - we’ve got this in stock too.
This year, in addition to the round Christmas decoration Lalique have also
released Christmas tree and Christmas bell ornaments, available in clear
and red crystal. They are all in stock now at village gallery, and they’ll be
online soon, but once they’re gone there won’t be much chance of getting any more in in time for
this year’s celebrations.
We have just started stocking the work of self-taught jewellery
designer/maker and sculptor Paul Allinson, and have some of his great
bold statement pieces in store. But we can go further, as we can get
bespoke jewellery designed and made to your specification and budget -
do drop in and have a chat.
village gallery is open from Tuesday to Saturday, 10am until 5pm.
Just when we had it set in our heads, and our Christmas adverts were with the printers, other
traders in York got together with York BID and First Buses and decided that perhaps we’d all make
Friday late night shopping this year! So from now until Christmas we will be open until 7pm every
Friday, not Thursday as in previous years. Buses will run to and from the Park-and-Rides until late
too, so you can start your weekend with a little shopping, maybe a drink and a meal, and still get
Of course, you could just stay in and shop from your pc … our website is open for business 24 x 7.
