Rosalux gallery is proud to announce the opening of it’s twelfth annual Open Door exhibition coming to the gallery this December.  Open Door is the one time of year when Rosalux opens its doors to artists outside of the collective in the form of an open call to bring inside what is happening outside of the gallery doors and give them an opportunity to share their work with our audience.  Open Door Twelve will feature work form artists Nicolas Darcourt, Justine Di Fiore, Mary Gibney, Monica Howell, R.J. Kern, Daniel McCarthy- Clifford, Karen Peters, Montana Picard, Erika Ritzel, Nick Rivers, Adam White, and Jake Zirbes.  This year’s call was jurored by artist and curator Andrea Carlson who had this to say about the selections she made for this years open door exhibition,

“This years Open Door was narrowed by the unified, curated theme of tactility. There is an immediacy of associating a surface with similar things one has touched. When I see the texture of an object, there is a known, lived experience. Looking past the glossy screen of a minimalist surface, glancing at my minimalist phone, I’m more tortured by the texture, complexity of surface, materiality that I can’t reach—the desire to break a snow globe to free the figurines. The artists in this exhibition are communicating experiences or theory sympathetic though texture and materiality. That being said, follow my mother’s warning and, “touch with your eyes.”
