The Faces Behind the Gallery
Welcome to the people behind the scenes of the gallery. Apart from the fantastic art and talented artist with their dedicated pages, there are multiple people behind Gallery Sorelle Sciarone. Each of us is committed to making art accessible.
Galerie Sorelle Sciarone was founded in 2018 with Tascha Sciarone, the art historian at the helm. Since then various Artists, Journalists, Art Historians and Museuologists have contributed to analysing and describing the art at Gallery Sorelle Sciarone.
Tascha Sciarone - Gallery Manager
Tascha is a classically trained Art Historian who, during her time at Leiden University, specialized in business administration, pedagogy, anthropology, law and development. She combines all these formal studies in the development of Gallery Sorelle Sciarone.
Tascha needs a lot to keep her attention, and luckily that's one of the great features of art. The ability to continuously captivate the viewer.
She has always loved working in auction houses, and running a gallery has the same highs and intricate balancing acts as having a family.
Nicole Sciarone - Art Theorist
Tascha's unofficial advisor at the Gallery, but an official younger sister. She has spent a lot of time listening and thinking about the development of the Gallery.
Nicole Sciarone is an artist, art theorist and moderator of the artist panel.
She studied art at Willem de Kooning in Rotterdam, the Netherlands and Contemporary Art Theory at Edinburgh College of Art, Scotland. She is in no way compensated or affiliated with the final decisions in the Gallery. Nicole places great emphasis on her integrity and autonomy as an artist and art theorist.
She is critical and has a very sharp mind. And we'd like to acknowledge that by adding her to this page.
