“Sentience” features work by Raleigh artist Adam Cohen whose paintings and drawings invite the viewer to recognize emotional connections to others through visual depictions that “stretch the truth.” As Cohen says of the works on display: “We are drawn to particular pieces of art for the same reason we’re drawn to other people (and animals, for that matter): an empathic emotional connection. A dissolving of the borders between us. A recognition of another’s sentience—their capacity to feel, to suffer—which is, in fact, the basis of all culture and communities.”
