Put art on your wedding list
An original painting is a wedding gift which is truly original, special, long-lasting and in which friends and family can also share.
Since so many people getting married today already have their own homes, there is no longer any need for the traditional wedding list. Kentmere House Gallery is offering a delightful alternative - an original painting. This is a gift which is genuinely original, will last lifetime, and which friends and family can also enjoy.
The unique wedding list scheme from York’s Kentmere House Gallery allows the bride and groom to make their own choice, ensuring that the gift is exactly to their taste. Paintings can also be commissioned, or an artist could be invited to make a record of the celebrations.
Choose from the work of more than 50 artists, ranging from the nationally-known to promising newcomers, in a great range of styles & with a range of prices from £100 to £3,000. All the work is original, and much is by artists from the region. The gallery would be delighted to help you choose, and to receive and manage your guests’ contributions on your behalf.
The process is simple: wedding guests simply deposit the amount of their choice with the gallery. This is then combined with the contributions of other guests to enable the couple to select a painting of their choice. An illustration of a chosen painting can be provided to be incorporated into the wedding invitation, and a chosen painting can be displayed at the event if desired.
The scheme can also be used as a genuinely original gift service for birthdays, retirements, Christmas, etc.
Kentmere House Gallery specialises in high-standard original art, mostly representational in style, shown in the relaxed setting of a large Victorian house. We show well-known artists, from Yorkshire and further afield, alongside talented newcomers,. This allows us to offer a wide price range.- from £150—over £3,000. All the work is original - there are no mass-produced prints.
