Rachel, previously a Primary School Teacher in Malton for 15 years, set up The Animal Art Gallery initially in Dapper Dogs, a dog grooming studio on Finkle Street in Malton. It seemed fitting to choose animals as a theme, and it has stuck!

The gallery soon outgrew the grooming studio and has now moved to new premises across the road. We now have much more space and so many more artists! Our artists are mainly from Yorkshire and it is such a privilege to support such local talent. We hold monthly solo Exhibitions for our artists and stock a wide range of art and gifts all year round
