Gallery 414 presents Viva Vivarium: Non-Printmaking Works by Printmakers featuring Josh Banks, Payton Lower, Adam Palmer, Linda Lucia Santana, Gary Uribe and Christopher Wallace. Viva Vivarium opens Gallery Night, Saturday, March 23 with a reception for the artists from 12:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. The reception is free and open to the public.
Viva Vivarium features current and former University of North Texas printmaking students exhibiting non-printmaking pieces. According to Adam Palmer, “Practicing other mediums helps us develop our skills that can be translated into our prints.”
The title, Viva Vivarium, refers to an enclosed area used for observing animals and plants. Speaking for the group, Palmer says, “We feel a gallery serves a similar purpose. We hope the viewer can observe each piece and feel the energy and see the influences.”
Viva Vivarium is the first exhibition at Gallery 414 since the gallery closed for city street repairs on Templeton last Fall. Gallery 414 is made possible through the generosity of Razz Fiesler. Gallery 414 is located near Fort Worth’s museum district and is open weekends from 12:00 until 5:00 and by appointment only. Gallery and exhibition inquiries should be directed to Adele Krause by calling 817-821-5817 or 817-465-9277, or via e-mail at email@example.com.
