Fuelled by a passionate desire to promote the many and varied talents of artists and makers living in the Yorkshire region, art graduate Emma-Jane Whelan opened the gallery in November 2011, providing a tranquil space in the heart of Pocklington, where artists and makers could exhibit their work for sale.
The aim was to showcase the best of local fine art originals, including paintings, prints, photography, illustration, jewellery & silversmithing, sculpture, ceramics, glass and textiles.
There is still a strong emphasis on the 'Buy Local' ethos which is backed up by the high quality and affordability of the wide range of work on show, but now, after more than four years of establishing our particular brand of hand made, high quality products, ART&ROSE is about to enter a new realm, taking the gallery off the high street and out into the world wide web.
