Art and talent: checking out Gallery Sorelle Sciarone in The Hague

Also into art and culture? Or giving a platform to talented and creative youngsters? We here at DutchReview are and when we stumbled upon the Gallery Sorelle Sciarone, we just had to give it a mention.

What is Gallery Sorelle Sciarone?

Gallery Sorelle Sciarone is an online gallery aiming to bridge the gap between artist and the wider public. The name comes from ‘sorelle’ meaning ‘sisters’ in Italian and ‘Sciarone’ the family name composing of six sisters. So this gallery really is a family affair and has that personal touch.

The founders of the gallery are based in the region of Voorschoten (a cute village here in the Netherlands, people from The Hague and Leiden will know) and their current focus is on artists in that region, along with Wassenaar and cities in the Randstad, such as Leiden, Rotterdam, Delft and The Hague. They’re inspired by their mother, who is an artist herself and has been painting for many years and has witnessed firsthand the changing nature of the market of art. Therefore, Gallery Sorelle Sciarone aims to give that platform to talented artists who want to exhibit their art.

So what’s there to see? Let’s look at some of the works and artists on display:

2. Els Kampert

Els her work is called ‘Dendritic design’, which comprises growth patterns in nature. This is essentially a mix of her artistic skill mixed with organic patterns in nature such as tree branches, rivers and human lungs.

6. Denise van der Burgh

Denise’s work is very vibrant in colour. She uses oil paint to achieve this, along with a masterful technique. Her work portrays life and social issues, so it’s really thought-provoking. All of these elements gel together and provide a fantastic piece of emotional art that draws the viewer in and make them start asking all of those important questions.
