Gallery owner and curator Cecile Creemers is passionate about art, curating and creativity.
Whilst living in The Netherlands, Cecile was a graphic designer who often taught art classes, curated exhibitions and organised creative breaks. After having relocated to the scenic village of Crayke in Yorkshire, Kunsthuis gallery was soon to be established. Since 2014, the gallery has quickly become a recognised venue for showcasing and selling contemporary art in the region and is the go-to place for artistic incitement and escapism. In 2016, Kunsthuis Gallery was nominated as a Finalist for the ‘Welcome to Yorkshire’ White Rose Awards for Arts & Culture. We were successfully shortlisted again in 2017.
The gallery features a rich range of work by prolific British & International professionals, bringing a varied and desirable selection of work to Yorkshire, offering something a little different in our contemporary tastes.
Kunsthuis is a Yorkshire gallery dedicated to innovative developments in contemporary art through its diverse and vibrant programme of exhibitions which represent a unique range of paintings, sculptures, prints, photography, ceramics, glass and jewellery. There’s certainly something for every art lovers palate. Refreshing every ten weeks, our exhibition programme boasts new and innovative artists who have caught our eye with unique and captivating work.
On site you will also find Dutch house Café & Gardens, a free entrance 1.6 acre wildlife garden and an art café serving up delicious lunches, cakes and coffees.
Our mission is to connect people to artists and to art!
