Palettes for the Senses Exhibit Examines Art through Scent

Palettes for the Senses: Art + Scent Demystified A multi-sensory exhibition by Indigo Perfumery and HEDGE Gallery

Indigo Perfumery, Ohio’s only perfume gallery, will collaborate with HEDGE Gallery to present Palettes for the Senses: Art + Scent Demystified.

The cross-disciplinary exhibition offers a unique opportunity to experience the world of art through the curatorial lens of scent. Palettes for the Senses will present 11 art installations, paintings, and multi-media pieces created by Hedge-represented artists from an olfactory viewpoint. This immersive experience will transcend sensory borders while exploring scent as a creative but unseen medium.

Guests will visit a series of smelling and viewing stations. Each piece of art will be accompanied by glass domes that are lifted to sniff the fragrances, allowing viewers to investigate the visual art while experiencing an olfactory interpretation, highlighting the awareness of scent and its increasing presence as a design element.

A perfume lab in the gallery will bring to life the process of creating a fragrance.

HEDGE Gallery artists represented are Rebecca Cross, Matthew Gallagher, Meghann Hennen, Christopher Kier, David Masters, Liz Maugans, Brian Mouhlas, Jessica Pinsky, Katy Richards, Dott von Schneider and Nikki Woods.

Palettes for the Senses: Art + Scent Demystified will be on view February 9 to March 3 at HEDGE Gallery. A preview event will be held on February 9, 2017, from 6:30 to 9 p.m. The opening reception is scheduled for February 17, 2017, from 5 to 9 p.m. Gallery hours are Tuesday to Friday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.; evenings and weekends by appointment.
