The COMMA Fine Art Gallery presents KNOWN, IMAGINED, EXPERIENCED, evoking a Sense of Place as its third thematic group show. The curated work by 38 artists explore and challenge our ideas of what Sense of Place can mean from different mediums and perspectives, ranging from sculptural context, abstraction, the broader self as a place of experience and representative realism.


KNOWN, IMAGINED, EXPERIENCED will open with a daytime opening on Saturday, February 10, 12-5pm and will be on view through March 15. A closing reception will be held from 12-3pm on Friday, March 15. 


Included in this show is Charles Clough’s Crucible of Creation, hailed as Clough’s “audacious return to sculpture.” A founder of Hallwalls Contemporary Art Center, Clough has been a resident artist at the Roycroft Campus for the past decade. Clough will deliver an artist’s talk on Saturday, March 2 entitled “Jaggy Smudge: What I’ve Learned Since Coming to East Aurora in 2013.”


Two Convo @ The COMMA events will be held with an opportunity to meet with and engage with the artists.  A Painter's Forum on Saturday, February 17 and a Photographer's Forum on Sunday, February 25 offer informal conversation and interaction from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Coffee and light refreshment will be served. These events are open to the public and free of charge, in keeping with THE COMMA mission to inspire, elevate and create new perspectives while making fine work accessible and creating conversation.


A schedule of guest gallerists will allow the public to meet the artists in the show. Guest gallerists include Pat Pendleton, Peter Potter, Diane Menchetti, John Hafey and Lee Williams. A complete schedule of guest gallerists and Artist Talks will be published on in the coming weeks. Follow The COMMA on Instagram and Facebook at @thecommagallery for updates and announcements.
