With the joy of the festive season upon us, we send our warmest greetings to you all. In this spirit of celebration, Colin Wilson’s ‘Champagne and Raspberries’ beckons us into the season with a welcome, fizzing refreshment. Imbued with an exquisite modern sensibility, Colin’s still life is a triumph of simple elegance. A contemporary classic to stand the test of time.
This month it is our tremendous pleasure to reopen our gallery doors to you all in time for Christmas. From Wednesday 2nd of December our York gallery is now open seven days a week, 10am-5pm, with our Harrogate gallery open on Wednesdays and Saturdays or by Private Appointment. For those wishing to collect or purchase directly from our York or Harrogate galleries, you may do so up until Saturday the 19th of December at 5:00pm from our Harrogate gallery, and up until noon on Thursday 24th of December from our York gallery.
December sees the continuation of our annual Edward Hersey and Gordon Lees exhibition, exclusively available online, with an array of original paintings and signed limited edition prints, by two of Britain's finest living landscape artists. So be sure to visit the online exhibition and discover your next masterpiece - or perhaps the perfect gift for a fellow collector.
While already welcoming new artwork by Daniel Van Der Putten and Raymond Campbell this month, we excitedly await the arrival of new paintings by the end of next week, from artists including Amanda Jackson, Caroline Richardson, Jay Nottingham and Terry Evans. So do check in regularly with our Recently Acquired page for all new arrivals.
Finally, if you are hoping for deliveries in time for Christmas, the last day for domestically shipped orders from both York Fine Arts and our London dealership, The Colomb Art Gallery, will be Wednesday the 16th of December. The last day for international orders will be Monday, the 14th of December.
We wish you all the very best this Christmas and look forward to welcoming you to our galleries soon.
Amanda Jackson, a self-proclaimed people watcher, believes in making her work “accessible and involving; paintings we can all relate to”. She states, “I often paint scenes about life rather than simply depicting it. Nostalgia, street scenes, childhood memories... if you feel a sense of yearning, or ‘I wish I was there’ then I've done my job right".
