Blossom Street Gallery & Framing, York

Artwork: Kate Semple

There's a new gallery on the block - just by Micklegate Bar in York.  And it's well worth a look! 
Wild flower art by Catherine King, ceramics by Marianne Von Tucka and Pete Colbridge

Spacious gallery - seascapes by Rosie Dean

Excellent choice of frames

Art supplies
Cards and stationery

Blackboard & grass steps! Art by Anna Harding

Not only can it meet your needs for cards, art, pottery and jewellery, you can get your pictures framed here too!  And if it's not a bespoke frame you're after there are also ready made frames and art supplies as well.  The friendly owner and framer, Kim Oldfield, has made this gallery into a light, welcoming space where you can browse quite happily.  And if you've got some little ones there's a blackboard wall for them to doodle on (and some grass stairs which I love!) to keep them occupied while you enjoy looking round!

Kim is promoting local and regional artists and is currently stocking work by:

Ian Cameron
Rosie Dean
Anna Harding
Adele Karmazyn
Catherine King
Mick Lynch
Kate Semple
Kate Young

Pete Colbridge
Katherine Ann Mutch
