School House Gallery

A contemporary art gallery in beautiful gardens with a fully licensed pop-up bar and cafe.


Phil Reynolds, Ten Years in the Landscape
Preview: Friday 23 February 6-8pm: all welcome

Please join us for the opening of an exhibition that surveys the landscape works, both abstract and figural, painted by established York-based artist Phil Reynolds over the last decade.

He has shown at numerous galleries around the U.K. and was one of the first artists to show at the School House Gallery in our inaugural Vessel exhibition in 2009.

Expressive mark-making is at the core of Phil’s work: ‘Reacting to and making instinctive decisions about these marks is where the true excitement and creativity lies for me in painting’.

The Gallery is open Tuesday – Saturday 11am – 4.30pm

Cardamom & Dill

The thermometer is rising and Cardamom & Dill’s spring fresh lunch menu for Thursday 22nd, Friday 23rd and Saturday 24th February is inspired by the gloriously simple food of the beloved Greek islands featuring the following dishes:
– A warming bowl of Greek gigantes beans with spinach, mint and dill (vegan)
– Sumptuous roasted red peppers stuffed with rice, raisins and almonds (vegan)
– A nutty spelt salad with chickpeas, rocket, lemon and fresh parsley (vegan)
– Dimitri’s horiatiki, a classic Greek salad with feta, tomatoes & olives
– Greek goddess hummus with fresh parsley, tarragon and chives (vegan)

Peter & Shirley Teed

It is with great sadness that we have to announce the deaths of Robert’s parents, Shirley and Peter Teed. Shirley died on 4 January, Peter on the 14th. Their funeral took place at Crantock Church in Cornwall on 20 January.

Shirley Teed was a distinguished artist and a memorial exhibition of her work will take place at the gallery later this year.

Damian Le Bas 1963 – 2017

IMG_3107We were heartbroken to learn of the death of the artist Damian Le Bas. Damian was a visionary artist and a brilliant exponent of Art Brut or Gypsy DaDa (a term he coined). He was also a man with an amazing sense of humour and a warm, generous soul and we feel immensely privileged to have worked with him on our Black Butterflies exhibition (2013) and Grace In Thy Sight residency (2014). Our thoughts and sympathies go to his wife Delaine and son Damian James.


We are currently stocking the beautiful catalogue of ‘Home From Home’, an exhibition of international ceramicists currently on show at Contemporary Applied Arts in London. The CAA invited Robert to write a catalogue essay for Home From Home, which appears alongside an essay by David Whiting and profiles of each of the twenty-five participating artists. Catalogues are £10.

One thought on “School House Gallery”

  1. Such a relaxing place. A pot of Earl Grey, a piece of home-made cake, some interesting art works and Dave Brubeck in the background – I’ll definitely return!
