Calling all members in the north of England! ROSL is on the road again next week, with a special event taking place at the Art House in Wakefield to celebrate the end of residency for our two 2019 Visual Arts Scholars on Wednesday 30 October.
In September, ROSL welcomed Cole Ndelu and Dimple Shah to the UK for our ROSL International Residency with The Art House in Wakefield, giving them an opportunity to hone their practice and expand their networks. Cole is a South African photographer who has spent her time in the UK photographing and developing work across different media. She presented three striking portraits from her series exploring femininity. Dimple is a performance artist and printmaker from India and has spent her time in the print studio and thoroughly researching Wakefield and its histories, particularly linked to the stories and applications of the local plants. Dimple shared delicate prints at the art fair, also presenting a performance where visitors were invited to interact with the artist.
On 11 October, Cole and Dimple presented work at Manchester Contemporary art fair, sharing their brilliant work and spreading the word about ROSL over the weekend. Now, to celebrate an exhibition is being held at the Art House showcasing their work and it is your chance to get involved this weekend at a special reception.
From 6pm on 30 October, its your opportunity to view the work of both artists and chat to Cole, Dimple and ROSL ARTS staff, to gain a better insight into the work on display. Refreshments will be served.
Attendance is free. RSVP here.
