Kentmere House Gallery
Kentmere House Gallery is a different kind of gallery, with original art displayed in the relaxed setting of a fine Victorian house overlooking York’s famous Knavesmire race-course.
The gallery is owned by Ann and David Petherick. Ann moved to York from Suffolk in 1979 and was amazed to find that there was no contemporary gallery. She therefore set up Grape Lane Gallery with two partners in 1984. Having visited galleries in private houses in other parts of the country she was attracted to the idea and Kentmere House was chosen for the purpose. The gallery opened here in 1991.
The gallery is friendly and unpretentious, offering advice both to new purchasers and established collectors.
