Officially opened on 8th October 2016, Silson Contemporary is an exciting independent art gallery situated in Harrogate.
Following a long career as a Radiographer, and still currently working one day a week for the NHS, owner, curator and art lover Sarah Collier, gained a First Class BA (Hons) Art History in 2014. This was the ‘push’ she needed to open Silson Contemporary, selling work she loved by artists she admired, in a gallery that was professional, welcoming and non-judgmental – the type of gallery she would,herself, love to walk into. She has never looked back.
The gallery proudly exhibits work of both emerging and established artists from Yorkshire and the rest of the UK. Personally selected by Sarah for quality and beauty, the work for sale encompasses original contemporary painting, illustration, ceramics and sculpture. We also sell gift vouchers, an excellent present for those discerning art lovers.
Together with a regularly changing display of work by gallery artists, we also hold seasonal exhibitions each year, where we introduce the work of carefully selected invited artists.
