This dancing Lady may have caught your eye if you've been into The Red Door Gallery recently, the original monotype is part of an exhibition which is opening tonight at The Broughton Delicatessen, 7 Barony Street, Edinburgh. Hillary Rogerson is a graduate of Edinburgh College of Art's painting department and also Assistant Manager at The Broughton Deli. Titled Nominate, the curation of this exhibition has been guided by the deli's talented staff, with Hilary's energetic, burlesque dancers taking centre stage.

Rebecca Jane Armstrong's works were nominated by Natasha, whose cheery face has welcomed customer's to the deli over the last 4 years. Rebecca's time consuming and lovingly hand made installation is based upon her interest in 'slow entertainment' - much like the slow food movement championed in The Deli's kitchen. Her patterned plush character's have their own tales to tell and will welcome you to the Deli over the coming month.

Esmee van Breugel is an Edinburgh based painter whose flatmate nominated her striking botanical works. Jen is the newest foodie talent to graduate from service to preparing food in the kitchens. Esmee's background lies in Art History, completing her at masters at Edinburgh University inspired Esmee to turn to the creation of Art Works, and we're jolly glad she did.

We hope to see you at the opening tonight from 7.30pm, where you can sample food from one of The Independant's top UK Deli's along side some fine, fine art.
