New School House Gallery is a contemporary object and art gallery in York. Through regular exhibitions it shows ‘the best in contemporary art, studio ceramics and the decorative arts’.
Paula Jackson and Robert Teed the founders are also active on the York art scene and The Festival of Ideas.
‘Crunchtime was an event depicting International Artists’ Responses to Global Issues running in York . Sorry it is crunchtime if you wanted to visit but there are regular exhibitions and a newsletter available.
My visit to that event introduced me too the New School House Gallery in Peasholme Green near St Cuthberts and former HQ for the Quilt Museum.
‘Housed in a grade II former schoolhouse, the gallery is showcasing work in contemporary ceramics, glass, wood and metal, textiles and jewellery by both established and up-and-coming makers. It will also exhibit paintings, prints, mixed-media work, sculpture and installations by artists from the UK and abroad.’ read more on the New School House Gallery website. This relatively new venture is planning a series of themed exhibitions and is in the third year of support for 53º North.
53º North is an acclaimed annual showcase of degree-level fine and applied art. It selects 53 artists from institutions across the United Kingdom who compete for a £1000 prize anf exposure. A range of work will be displayed includes painting, photography, installation, ceramics, glass, textiles and jewellery.
If that isn’t enough reason to visit the gallery it is located in The Secret Garden’ . After a mind broadening trip you can have coffee and cakes at Le Langhe delicatessen.
I have been back several times since that first visit and recommend that corner of York for contemporary art.
Doubtless the gallery was more popular during the enforced closure of York Art Gallery although like many galleries it went through a checkered time.
The web site seems to date very quickly and needs some attention. A newsletter by email is available see New School House Gallery York info page
