5: COME TO YOUR SENSES to Open 3/6 at Fountain Gallery
Fountain Gallery, located at 702 Ninth Avenue and representing artists with mental illness, announces the upcoming opening of "5: Come to Your Senses." This group show of more than 40 artworks that invite viewers to "see, hear, taste, touch, smell" will run from March 6 through April 23, 2014, with an Opening Reception on Friday, March 7, 6-8pm. The exhibit has been organized by Fountain Gallery Manager Ariel Willmott.
Among the works presented in "5: Come to Your Senses" are: Davida Adedjouma's mixed-media Hidden en Plein Air(Spring/Summer), an extravaganza of fabrics and found objects made to be touched; Osvaldo Cruz's marker-on-paper Mmm Good, a visual sampling of tasty treats; and Jonathan Glass's pen-and-ink Philippe Duchemin Trio at Duc des Lombards, which calls forth the sounds of jazz musicians in live performance. Also in the exhibit is Ariella Kadosh's Artswirl, a limited edition of 6 "sets" to be experienced through both scent and sight; each "set" comprises a bottle of essential oil complemented by two miniature paint-marker works on canvas.
This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, and by generous support from The Jarvis & Constance Doctorow Family Foundation and The Renate, Hans and Maria Hofmann Trust.
