Seascapes by Rosie Dean is the new exhibition showing at village gallery on Colliergate.

Rosie grew up in York, and studied art at York School of Art, later moving first to Manchester School of Art then subsequently Lancaster School of Art. The latter move helped her to develop her skills in landscape art as there was easy access to the coast and the drama of the Lake District.

On completing her BA Hons degree Rosie moved to London and from there on to New York where she worked on fabric design. On returning to London she started a business hand painting fine art on to furniture. She continued this business when she returned to York in 1992, opening a shop on Grape Lane.

Since 2008 she has returned to purely creating paintings, and constantly enjoys the challenges it brings.

“I feel total peace breathing the ozone, staring out to sea and focusing on the horizon line, sensing all around me and feeling the elements around me, the sight and sounds, the salt in the air. Pure contentment.

“Then in contrast watching the mesmerizing strength and energy of crashing waves as they make their race to shore.

“These remembered scenes I can take back home to the studio and attempt to translate into a painting that reflects that moment in time.”

Rosie has had many solo exhibitions over the years, including York Art Gallery, and has taken part in Open Studios for the last 10 years.

Rosie’s exhibition opens at village gallery York on Tuesday 7th December 2021, and it runs until Saturday 22nd January.

Aside from its regularly changing art exhibitions village gallery is York’s official stockist of Lalique glass and crystal, and additionally sells a great selection of art, jewellery, ceramics, glass and sculpture, much of it the work of local artists.

Village gallery is normally open Tuesday to Saturday, and can be open at other times by arrangement.
