The Five Senses
is an exhibition that incorporates two or more senses (touch, taste, see, smell and hear). The physicality of this exhibition aims to engage and stimulate the viewer through works that address all aspects of human sensation. Our juror, F. Lennox Campello, one of the most visible art personalities in the Mid Atlantic will be providing a gallery talk during the reception on March 13 at 7pm. From over 140 entries, he chose 23 artworks by 17 artists from all over the country.

The work ranges from a drawing depicting blindfolded men leading each other over an edge into total darkness, a breathing and pulsating blob made of glass, a “Fresh Breath” assemblage, to interactive works that include “Thought Stimulators” and an “Idea” tube. It is clear that Campello had a great time selecting a wealth of work that encompasses a large sampling of art that incorporates multiple senses whether literally or conceptually.

The Target Gallery, national exhibition space of the Torpedo Factory Art Center, is located on the waterfront in Old Town Alexandria at 105 North Union Street. Gallery hours are Wednesday – Sunday 12pm- 5pm and every second Thursday of the month until 9pm.
