Gallery 263 is pleased to announce our regional juried exhibition, Sensation, Feeling: Texture. This show features the work of 23 New England artists who explore the theme of texture and is juried by Vivian Poey, a faculty member in the College of Art and Design at Lesley University.
In Sensation, Feeling: Texture, the theme of texture is revealed through painting, drawing, embroidery, photography, sculpture, tapestry, monotype, and mixed media. Although nature and landscape serve as the inspiration for many of the works, concepts of decay, identity, and displacement are also present. In “Seeing Red,” Erica Licea-Kane draws upon a background in textiles and the materials of acrylic medium and pigment to evoke an aerial perspective of a cityscape. Rebecca Skinner is an urban explorer who visits abandoned spaces; in the photograph “West Passage,” Skinner captures peeling paint and rust. “Sunder,” an intimate and detailed hand-built ceramic by Jennifer Langhammer, serves as a specimen sample for a future world.
