Enter a sensory world with this year’s new Autumn Exhibition Suite, ‘Tactile’, now displaying at the Penrith Regional Gallery.
Reach out and gently, carefully, delicately, make contact: this is a world of sense and sensory satisfaction. For tactile, the gallery rules have been
suspended. The audience is invited to interact and touch.
The intense need to quantify material through touch is a huge pull for the gallery audience and tactile both challenges and delights as an exhibition that
is as much visually intriguing as physically accessible.
Featuring an array of visual landscapes, playing with material as much as form, Penrith Regional Gallery is transformed into a new planet - an environment
for people to experience artworks through touch. The artist is reaching out through their work and the audience is reaching in. The result is tactile
Tactile will be on exhibition @ Penrith Regional Gallery until 20 May 2018 – come along and get in
touch with art works by Pip and Pop, Emily Parsons-Lord, Hiromi Tango, Troy Emery and Hannah Toohey.
***Open daily admission is free.
Also on display, ‘5 x 5’ – the Artist and the Patron, until 20 May 2018. 5 x 5 recognises the significance
of these modern day pairings by exploring the trajectories of five artists - Uji (Hahan) Handoko Eko Saputro, Julian Meagher,
Nigel Milsom, Tracey Emin and Patrick Hartigan and their parallel collector relationship in an exhibition
bringing private collections into the public arena.
