Valentines Mansion is proud to be showcasing the talents of a local artist in our Gallery between Sunday 16 and Sunday 30th October. Inspired by her rich heritage and culture, artist Nina Gore’s collection of line art drawings of exotic animals comes together for our latest exhibition.
After experimenting with henna on hands, the self-taught artist now produces intricate and elaborate free-hand pieces using traditional henna patterns and line work within her art that will simply take your breath away.
Produced using a range of different art forms such as inks, pens and henna on paper and canvas, the distinctive pieces by Nina Gore will come together for the first time in Redbridge for this very special event. “I’m over the moon to be exhibiting at Valentines Mansion”, commented Nina. “I always had a passion for art and studied art & design, but even before that I was a natural creative and loved drawing and applying henna on people during weddings.”
“When my youngest daughter started school, I started expanding the roots of my talents. It gives me great satisfaction when others enjoy my art. My inspiration comes from my heritage and background, growing up with Bollywood, music, films, dance and just being a free spirit gives me that sense of style in my artwork. Also for me anything around me can inspire me…my moods, the weather, flowers, animals and people.”
As well as viewing the exhibition, visitors will the chance to meet with Nina and see her working on some of her creations. “Meet the Artist” will take place on Wednesday 26 October, between 1pm and 2pm.
“My aim is to create modern, affordable art with a traditional feel that appeals to a wide range of buyers from the general public to specialist collectors!” Nina’s work will be available to purchase – more information available when you visit the Mansion.
