January 2024 Newsletter

5 Points Gallery is pleased to announce our newest member, Ley Killeya. Hailing from England, Ley’s work explores how our bodies, and the ways others read them, are used to confer power, limit rights, exercise control, and interrogate identity. Please stop by our 3rd Friday Reception on Friday January 19th and welcome Ley! We’ll be serving hot mulled cider and toothsome treats!

Just in time for the Year of the Dragon, Yuko Nogami Taylor offers her vision of the mystical creature. You can also check out the latest works by our ten Triangle-based artists in a range of mediums including painting, sculpture, fused glass, and mixed media. Our current exhibit will be on display in our downtown Durham gallery through February 10, 2024.
