VILLAGE Gallery's new exhibition, in Colliergate, York, showcases the work of Skipton photographer and artist Lynn Shaw and the stone carving and sculpture of Anthony Bartyla, from Dunnington, from Tuesday (November 14).

Set up by owners Simon and Helen Main, the gallery sells antique, "less-old" and new art, craft, ceramics, glass, jewellery, sculpture and silver. "We already run a similar business online and recognise that many customers want to see and touch these items before buying them," says Simon, explaining why they have opened Village Gallery.

"One of the features of the gallery is exhibitions of art, both 2D and 3D, by local artists. The exhibitions run back to back, each lasting for around six weeks, and we also have permanent and extensive stocks of work by Lalique and Royal Crown Derby, among others."

Other artwork on display and on sale is the batik work of Rebecca Mason, from York, the limited-edition bronze sculptures of Edward Waites and limited-edition prints by illustrator Frank Vernon Martin (1921-2005).

The exhibition preview will be held from 5pm to 8pm on Monday (November 13) when both Lynn Shaw and Anthony Bartyla will be in attendance. To apply for admission, email or ring 01904 411444.
