All about us and where to leave details all about you!
Kate and Nick Bentley started Bils & Rye after several years of collecting sculptural glass and ceramics.
Kate comes from a family of artists, stretching back several generations and works as a oil painter, specialising in portraiture of people and animals, as well as her ever popular range of Highland Cows and other farm animals under the Kate in the Cowshed banner.
Nick had a varied career in air traffic control, building, event management and catering before working for a large British ceramics company. He also provides services to emerging artists, including web-design, promotion, PR and purchasing.
Together, the pair work out of Nunnington Studios, breathing new life into the area already blessed with Nunnington Hall, The Royal Oak Public House and Gallery Beyond. Located within the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that encompasses the Howardian Hills and the southern entrances to the North York Moors. The couple live in the village too, with their young family and mad dog.
Bils & Rye run a blog on a regular basis and this will soon include more detailed information on the artists we represent. We continue to source some work from North Yorkshire, whilst the majority is sourced from talent around the UK, either from established artists or emerging artisans. We carry a diverse range of stock by British contemporary artists including Stuart Akroyd, Guy Routledge, Helen Sinclair, Brittany Delany, Karen Banks, Carla Pownall and many more. We have recently begun to import some very high quality ceramics from Dubai, Spain and Germany.
Nunnington village is home to one of the National Trust’s gems in Nunnington Hall. It is a house that you can get up really close too and experience how life was for the owners. There is even a Turner on the wall to excite those who love a bit of history.
