C24 Gallery Celebrates the Closing of What is the color of scent?

Katja Loher’s widely lauded exhibition, What is the color of scent?" closed Saturday at C24 Gallery. A private celebration for friends, collaborators, and collectors was held at the gallery’s West 24th Street location in Chelsea during the final hours of the show.

The lower level of the gallery was transformed into a space for meditation and celebration of the five senses. Pillows, candles, rugs, and antique trays curated by Loher’s close collaborator for the show, Tansy Kaschak, filled the room with warmth and calm.

Tansy and Katja brought their guests on a candlelit meditative journey through the senses, a fitting end to an exhibition that promised to be an all encompassing sensory experience, and delivered.

A selection of Katja Loher’s works will be included in C24’s upcoming group show, “Core Sample”, opening November 8, 2018.
