Home » Venues » York St Mary’s

York St Mary’s is a beautiful medieval church which opened as a contemporary art venue in 2004. Each year, York Art Gallery commissions an artist to create a site specific installation within this unique space or invites an artist to show an existing work.

The artists find inspiration within the walls of this atmospheric building and their work transforms it anew each summer.

'Echo' by Susie MacMurray, 2006.
