Visual Pheromones

When: Aug. 26-Oct. 3 2010

At first glance, titling an art exhibit Visual Pheromones sounds a little silly. But look up the word "pheromones" in Wikipedia and the concept connects immediately; pheromones are excreted chemicals that arouse social response. Isn't that the raison d'être of a piece of art as well? Why didn't someone think of this before? And the scientific angle doesn't end there: This solo show by local artist Nadine Sage consists of papier collé (a form of collage) made from 18th- and 19th-century drawings of birds, insects, sea life and plants, which are colored with oil pastels then covered with a coat of polymer. Visual Pheromones is now on display at the Business of Art Center (513 Manitou Ave., Manitou Springs, and will be up through Oct. 3, for your free and triggered response. — Edie Adelstein
