Rollits Gives Local Artist The Space To Shine
Rollits has presented a local artist, Nichole Dean with theopportunity to showcase her talent by hosting a three-month debutexhibition at its Rowntree Wharf offices.
Nichole, 23, who was educated at the city's St Peter's School,is already making a name for herself - most recently selling anumber of works to a collector in New York.
Pat Coyle, director of client relations at Rollits, said: "Weactively seek to support local art and culture and when wediscovered Nichole's links to York we extended an invitation toexhibit her work in the city she grew up in."
"Admittedly for some, business premises may not equate to agallery, but art can be appreciated absolutely anywhere and I'mcertain that by showcasing the work of an up and coming localartist we will generate a great deal of new interest in her and herwork."
Nichole says her influences are rooted in experience - rangingfrom childhood trips to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park to a yearspent studying in Rome - and that she has been inspired by theabstract expressionists, Robert Motherwell and Franz Kline.
The works on display at the exhibition, which are realised incharcoal and oil, explore the themes of organic andindustrial, with some inspired by Yorkshire industrial scenes suchas the Ferrybridge power station.
Nichole said: "Every aspiring artist dreams of their debutexhibition, and to be given the chance so early in my career -especially in my home town - is a real boost."
The Nichole Dean exhibition at Rollits will be launched with aVIP showcase event on Thursday 28th November from 5.30 -8pm. During the event, Nichole's work "Dusk" will be raffled toraise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.
