The Faces Behind the Gallery
Welcome to the people behind the scenes at the gallery. Aside from the fantastic art and talented artist with their dedicated pages, there are multiple people behind Gallery Sorelle Sciarone. Each one of us is dedicated to making art accessible.
Gallery Sorelle Sciarone was conceived in 2018 and started in 2019 with Tascha Sciarone, the Art Historian at the helm. Tascha runs the gallery. Nicole Sciarone is her sister and is not formally associated with the gallery. However, she is a great help when it comes to bouncing ideas off of. Nicole is an Artist and Art Theorist.
In 2020, artist Chloe Xu and Art Historian Wouter Maas started analysing art and developing exhibitions. They do so remotely and intermittently, due to COVID-19 and the gallery still primarily being online.
Tascha Sciarone - Gallery Manager
Tascha is a classically trained Art Historian that branched out into business, pedagogy, anthropology, law and development during her time at Leiden University. She combines all these formal studies in developing Gallery Sorelle Sciarone.
Tascha needs a lot to hold her attention, and luckily that is one of the great markers of art. The ability to continuously engage the viewer.
She always loved working in auction houses, and managing a gallery has the same high-highs and intricate balancing act that works with having a family.
Nicole Sciarone - Art Theorist
Unofficial advisor to Tascha at the Gallery, but an official younger sister. She has spent significant time listening and weighing in on the development of the Gallery.
Nicole Sciarone is an Artist, Art Theorist and Artist Panel Moderator.
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 at the Gallery. Nicole places heavy emphasis on her integrity and autonomy as an artist and art theorist.
She is critical and has a very sharp mind. And that is what we would like to recognize by adding her to this page.
Gallery Sorelle Sciarone works together with curators to make the best possible exhibitions. We have had the pleasure to work with the following curators.

Chloe is a mixed media artist based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. She has two degrees, one for filmstudies from Beijing Film Acadamy, China as well as Mixed Media Art from the Piet Zwart Institute (Master Programme of the Willem de Kooning Art Academy).
Chloe has a sweet way of describing the paintings. Her words paint every painting anew. She is currently working with water colours in her own art.
