our team 2018/2019
Prior to coming to the University of York, I was introduced to the Norman Rea Gallery and becoming aware of the space and the society swayed me to choose York as my place of further academic student. The Norman Rea Gallery has presented a multitude of opportunities from understanding the inner-most workings of a gallery to being part of a community, one of which I feel honoured to lead.
My name is Jessica Jenkinson and I will be vice-directing for this academic year at The Norman Rea Gallery. I am an English Literature and History of Art student in my final year. Having been involved
in the gallery for the past two years and having been Head of Press and Publicity last year, I have fortunately been involved in many projects and exhibitions within the gallery, for example, I have co-curated Myths (summer 2017), Ctrl X + Ctrl V (summer 2018) and For Sale (summer 2018).

Head of Graphics
My name is Sophie Sharpe and I have been elected as the Head of Graphics for the Norman Rea Gallery. I applied for this position because of my interest in advertising and visual culture.
My name is Matilda Bentley, and I am a third year History of Art undergraduate at York. My role on the Norman Rea Gallery Committee is that of Editor; I oversee and manage the WordPress platform, which can be found at thenormanreagallery.wordpress.com.
