Opening Reception: Friday, February 2 from 7-9pm

Come see the Visible Touch: A Look at Texture exhibit featuring works by local artists that explore texture through physical form or visual illusion. Join them for the opening reception on Friday, February 2 between 7-9pm at Del Ray Artisans gallery to meet curators Dawn Wyse Hurto and Lesley Hall and the artists.

Texture is one of the fundamental elements of art. In anticipation of how texture can prompt a desire to touch, visitors are allowed to touch some of the art. (Pieces that allow touching are marked.) Artists have also shared statements on how they created the various textures. Enjoy the visual and the tactile experience of this exhibit!

Donations appreciated for any cards you make that you are taking home. Come solo, with friends or your Valentine. The event is open to all ages and skill levels.

The gallery is free, open to the public, and accessible. For more information, visit
