“Sensorium” Art Exhibit at Del Ray Artisans Gallery

Exhibit Dates: January 5-28, 2018
Opening Reception: Friday, January 5 from 7-9pm

Our senses and the apparatus in our brain—the sensorium—evoke emotional feelings of sympathy, appreciation, or gratitude, or something that is moving, heartwarming, or tender. The connection between our senses and emotions makes contact with our hearts through someone, something, or an event—be it a pat or tap on the head; or the feel of flower petals, hard steel, body parts or smooth glass. This exhibit honors how artists interpret the impact of our human journey through evoking the five senses.

Join us at the opening reception on Friday, January 5 from 7-9pm to discover these unique artworks, meet the curators, artists, and art appreciators.

The Sensorium exhibit runs January 5 through January 28, 2018 at Del Ray Artisans gallery in the Colasanto Center, 2704 Mount Vernon Avenue, Alexandria, Virginia 22301. Gallery hours are: First Thursdays (April-September) 12-9pm, Thursdays 12-6pm, Fridays 12-9pm, Saturdays 12-9pm, and Sundays 12-6pm. The gallery is free, open to the public, and handicap accessible.
