Mark your calendars for the Opening Reception of the 8th Annual Juried Student Art Exhibition, titled “Colorful Textures: Synaethesia in Art.”

Synaesthesia [sin-is-thee-zhee-uh] is a joining together of sensations that are normally experienced separately. Different textures, shapes, and lines can create a more vivid experience for people who experience synesthesia, yet applies to everyone’s experience of art in how highly textural, colorful pieces leave more of an imprint on our minds; Gauguin’s tropical blues, oranges, and yellows of Tahiti, or Pip and Pop’s sugary sweet installations of candy. These engaging works of art remind us that art can be an escape from reality, and that highly textural, synesthetic artwork can lead us to fully experience this escape. Colorful Textures represents the antithesis of tedious, theoretical and academic artwork.

Participating student artists come from all levels at the New England School of Photography, Massachusetts College of Art and Design, School of the MFA, Northeastern University, Art Institute of Boston, Boston College, and Boston University.

Come to enjoy hors d’oeuvres, wine, and conversation with the artists. The reception and exhibition are free and open to the public.
The exhibition will be on display January 24, 2013 – February 26, 2013.
