STRANGE DAYS – York artists online

York artists have been preparing for months for the Open Studios weekends, which have been cancelled because of the Corona Virus pandemic. So we have offered some of those artists who have worked with Pyramid Gallery the opportunity to show their new work with the help of our website

FREE delivery to YO postcode addresses

We are calling the Online Show ‘STRANGE DAYS – Art behind Doors’
The name is taken from a song by the 1960’s band, The Doors

‘Strange Days have found us
Strange days have tracked us down
They’re going to destroy our casual joys
we shall go on playing, or find a new town’

We will deliver anything bought on this website, free of charge to any address in the  York YO postcode area, or for £7.95 anywhere on mainland UK. Whilst we will try for prompt delivery times, they will be subject to negotiating the current limitations, and we will keep all customers informed.

Artists – please send images to [email protected] with details, and we will put the items for sale on our website. We shall be adding many more images here of works for sale between now and the end of May
