Over seventy artists are participating in the weekend-long South Coast Open Studios, taking place throughout Tiverton, Little Compton, and across the border in Westport and Dartmouth. The new group show at Westport’s Dedee Shattuck Gallery features the work of artists specifically interested in texture. It’s mostly very good, but I was particularly drawn to pieces by of Jeanne Heifetz and Debra Weisberg. Heifetz uses metallic threads and wax to create her organic-looking Surface Tension series, while Weisberg’s wall sculptures resemble geological oddities, though the materials list includes paper tape and clear nail polish. Outside, Michael Kukla’s honeycomb-like sculpture is the newest addition to the gallery grounds.
