Colorful Textures: Synaesthesia in Art
8th Annual Juried Student Art Exhibition
The Rubin-Frankel Gallery at Boston University
Synaesthesia [sin-is-thee-zhee-uh]: 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 synaesthesia, yet it applies to everyone's experience of art in how highly textural, colorful pieces leave more of an imprint on our minds. Art can be an escape from reality, and highly textural, synesthetic artwork can lead us to fully experience this escape. Colorful Textures represents the antithesis of tedious, theoretical, and academic artwork.
Current students studying within the Greater Boston Area.
Undergraduate and Graduate work accepted.
All 2-D, 3-D, and digital works will be considered.
Three artists will be selected for awards after the exhibition has been installed, with cash prizes totaling $500.
