Do You Feel What I See?

May 18, 2013 – June 30, 2013

Calvin Coleman
Artist’s Talk:
June 23, 2013
2:00 – 4:00 pm

Going against proper gallery etiquette, Calvin Coleman invites you to touch the textured surfaces of his paintings. During the Artist’s Talk, Calvin will discuss his unique process and experience as a seeing artist who has created a series of paintings for the blind and visually impaired. The artist’s statement, titles and wall text describing the paintings are written in Braille and hang throughout the gallery space. The exhibition runs through Sunday, June 30, 2013.

In a world where touch is forbidden, artist Calvin Coleman’s exhibition “Do You Feel What I See?”invites the blind and visually impaired to experience his paintings with their hands. For the seeing, they too may engage with his work in a way that is considered taboo and against proper gallery etiquette, by closing their eyes and running their fingers across the painterly surfaces.

FREE and open to public. Seating is limited!
