Sidney venue offers wild art show

Well-known Sidney-based artist Nancy Rotolo presents a one-woman show at the Community Arts Centre in Sidney from May 21 to 25.

The show features Rotolo’s colourful new work in oils and acrylics, highlighting her unique interpretation of colour and light across diverse subject matter.

“Nancy’s work is wonderful,” said Kathy Hargreaves, a fan of Rotolo’s work. “It never fails to amaze me how Nancy captures the essence of her subject, whether she is painting a seascape, forest, flower, or animal. Her level of skill is remarkable.”

Rotolo started sketching and painting as a young child. She attended the Art Students League in New York after high school.

Prior to moving to Canada six years ago, Rotolo lived and showed her work in Florida. Since coming to Canada she has displayed her work in the Sidney Fine Art show and at other local venues.

Rotolo’s paintings are rich in colour and texture demonstrating a high level of craftsmanship. Her artwork reflects her deep love of nature, a powerful understanding of animals, and a great wonder about the world. Her award-winning paintings are in private collections across North America and Europe.

Rotolo’s new works will be on display at the Community Arts Centre, 9565 Fifth St., Sidney, in Tulista Park.

The centre is open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily. Admission is free.
