About

Bils & Rye are delighted to announce the opening of our winter exhibition – Animals and Art.

The exhibition will open on Saturday the 17th November 2018 with two very special events:

In the gallery, we will be showcasing works by world class artists on the theme of animals and hosting an exclusive opportunity to hear the internationally acclaimed artist Louise McNaught talk at 4pm about her techniques and her work with the WWF on conservation of endangered species. Louise will have copies of new book “Survival” available to buy as signed copies. Featured artists will also include internationally collected bronze sculptors Simon Gudgeon, Stephen Page and Ian Greensitt ceramic sculptor Valerie Price-West. We will also have the incredible privilege of exhibiting work by world renowned wildlife photographers Fiona Rogers and Anup Shah, whose works have featured in many publications including the National Geographic and the Natural History Museum. Fiona and Anup will be showcasing their brand new style of photographic prints for the first time exclusively with Bils & Rye.

In the Kirkbymoorside Library, Professor Joann Fletcher will be delivering a talk on the link between Ancient Egyptology and animals in art at 5pm. Professor Fletcher is a published author of countless journals, articles and books, has delivered her expertise to many radio and television programmes, is a visiting professor with York University and one of the world’s leading authorities on Ancient Egypt. The Kirkbymoorside History society has also volunteered to install an exhibition about the Howard Carter connection to the town and how this helped to put us on the antiquities map of the UK.

Due to the high demand expected, this will be a ticket only event – tickets can be purchased here https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/a-talk-by-joann-fletcher-about-ancient-egypt-and-the-importance-of-animals-tickets-51113810784

All proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to the Kirkbymoorside library. All attendees are invited to a Private View of the Exhibition at the gallery after the talks have finished where they can discuss the talks in depth with all the speakers. Drinks will be served by the Bils & Rye team.

Books by the speakers and some of the artists will be available from the Library and also the gallery for the week leading up to the talks and for the week following it.
