COLOR 2019: 3rd Annual Exhibit

COLOR 2019, 3rd Annual Exhibit. Pure and raw. A splash of color, lines of colors, dabs of color, colored fabric, colored hair, color color color! Throw yourself full force into the world of color and unleash your creativity! This exhibit is going to highlight color in every way. The 3rd Annual COLOR Exhibit is here this 2019!

Color theory is taught in art foundation training. Remember the color wheel, primary colors, and secondary colors? And how they can play off each other. An entire generation of artists influenced by abstract expressionism created a movement called Color Field painting. This isn't the 50s and 60s when great artists like Mark Rothko, Joan Miro, Jackson Pollock, Helen Frankenthaler, Clyfford Stil roamed the streets of New York made their mark. However, we now have electronics, neon, LEDs, Post-It notes, computers, videos, markers, and endless other new arrays of materials and tools to use. We want to see what you can imagine when you get colorful!

We are looking for all types of works--painting, sculpture, photography and more--works that show off your ability and creativity with color. Small and large formats. Give viewers and collectors a chance to see what color can do for them... The main criteria for selection is creativity and fresh approaches in the artwork.
