Last weekend for "The Allure of Texture"

If you haven't seen this show now is the weekend to go downtown to Zenith Gallery. Hop the red line metro and you're an easy block and a half walk from Gallery Place metro.

Metal Dress Sculptures by Donna M. McCullough & Mixed Media by Jodi
January 18 - February 25, 2007

texture: the characteristic visual and tactile quality of the surface
of artwork resulting from the way in which the materials are used

jodi: artist: a manual laborer, a creator of beautiful object.
jodi’s objective has always been to create unlimited lengths and heights of textured imagery. “I see and feel texture in everything I touch with eyes and hands.”

Donna McCullough: Crafted of steel and embellished with flourishes of wire mesh, screening, cutouts and bits of found objects, the dresses are at once both elegant and imposing. “I like the duplicitous nature of steel which can be manipulated to appear feminine and soft while actually maintaining its strength and rigidity – an expression in contrasts and complements.”
