Enter a sensory world. Reach out and gently, carefully, delicately, make contact: this is a world of sense and sensory satisfaction. For tactile, the gallery rules have been suspended. The audience is invited to interact and touch.

The intense need to quantify material through touch is a huge pull for the gallery audience and tactile both challenges and delights as an exhibition that is as much visually intriguing as physically accessible.

Featuring an array of visual landscapes, playing with material as much as form, Penrith Regional Gallery is transformed into a new planet - an environment for people to experience artworks through touch. The artist is reaching out through their work and the audience is reaching in. The result is tactile sensation.

tactile opens at 2pm Sunday 8 April at Penrith Regional Gallery and is on exhibition until 20 May 2018 – come along and get in touch with art works by Pip and Pop, Emily Parsons-Lord, Hiromi Tango, Troy Emery and Hannah Toohey.

Open daily admission is free.

Visit also 5 x 5 – the Artist and the Patron, also on exhibition until 20 May 2018.  5 x 5 recognises the significance of these modern day pairings by exploring the trajectories of five artists - Uji (Hahan) Handoko Eko Saputro, Julian Meagher, Nigel Milsom, Tracey Emin and Patrick Hartigan and their parallel collector relationship in an exhibition bringing private collections into the public arena.
