We are very open to approach from both existing artists and those at the beginning of their career. Part of the ethos of the gallery has always been to help talented makers to find a place for their work in a commercial environment.


To that end, we request that artists submit an email in the first instance with a link to their website and social media profiles and 3 to 5 examples of the work they feel best represents their current work and an indication of the direction they are taking.


These emails should be submitted to kate@bilsandrye.com


We will respond by the 5th of the following month following our creative direction meeting. Should your email application be successful you may be asked to submit a piece or selection of your works to be viewed by our team in the gallery before we are able to give you final confirmation.

To avoid disappointment, we politely request that artists book an appointment rather than turn up with artworks in person.





We can also recommend the Ask An Artist podcast run by Laura Boswell and Peter Keegan. They produce a weekly show which can be found at:
