Beyond the Surface Opening

Gallery 2506 announces the opening for Beyond the Surface, on Friday, June 5, 2015. Beyond the Surface highlights artists whose works consider tangible experience and memory of interaction within the real world. These works evoke a tension between a surface rooted in experience and form and an internal resonation.

Three artists will be featured in the show: Walter Early, Jane Michalski and Michael Kellner. Kathleen Burnett, Creative Director for Gallery 2506, says “Gallery 2506 continues to consider the concept of beauty in Beyond the Surface. This show focuses on two-dimensional works, paintings and prints, that entice the viewer to look deeply past the realm of the observable.”
