Gallery 263 is pleased to present Handled, a Juried Exhibition selected by Pat Falco. The exhibition celebrates the unrefined, imperfect, and utterly human artworks of today by bringing together 16 handmade works created by 16 artists from throughout New England.
The selection showcases a variety of media including installations, mixed media sculptures, paintings, drawings, embroideries, and much more. Each work makes the hand of the artist known in its own way. Some celebrate the precision of a steady hand. Others the expressive gestures of a loose one. Together, they look at the familiar and unexpected ways that artists use their hands to give their work individuality and style that no other tools could possibly create.
