Chasing Light Prospectus

Light itself can serve as both a subject and material of art, illuminating possibilities for psychological or symbolic impact when contrasted with shadow. Gallery 263 invites New England-based artists to submit to Chasing Light, an online exhibition that highlights the importance and impact of the role of light in visual art. This show is juried by Leah Triplett Harrington, curator for Now + There and editor-at-large of Boston Art Review.
