"Stump" by Leonard Aschenbrand
"5: Come to Your Senses" opened on Thursday, March 6, 2014 at Fountain Gallery. This group show of more than 40 artworks that invite viewers to “see, hear, taste, touch, smell” will run through April 23, 2014. 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.
