Curator’s Statement: TOUCH is a group exhibition exploring the meanings and implications of the word “touch”. The initial concept was a call for work that could be touched and handled but gradually moved into the conceptual context of the word. Artists combine tactile elements, textures, imagery conjured from memory and reactions to passion and conflict. In this iteration we explore the word as it emerges from the senses and can be experienced visually as well as kinesthetically.

Lucy Rovetto is an artist and part of the Artist Collective at ART150 since 2019 and Pro Arts since 2021. She holds a BFA from NJCU, was Visual Arts Coordinator and Curator at Jersey CIty Theater Center from 2015-2019 and worked as artist assistant to sculptor Anton Smit while living in South Africa from 2008-2013
