Corner Gallery is a new studio gallery in the vibrant Bishopthorpe Road area. Run by Veronica Ongaro and Andres Jaroslavsky, the gallery operates as a display space and as an open studio where you can drop in for a chat with the artists as they work on their current projects.
Veronica is a biologist and printmaker who has developed an impressive archive of prints reflecting her love of the natural world. They incorporate a variety of technical approaches including linocut, woodcut and etching.
Andres Jaroslavsky is a music teacher and self-taught painter specialising in portraiture who has had several solo exhibitions. Among his many local commissions are paintings for York restaurants The Olive Tree, Il Paradiso del Cibo and El Gaucho. In 2009, he was commisioned to paint the portrait of the head boy and head girl of Pocklington School.
