Brilliant Color
March 9 - April 19, 2018


Periodically over the last year, we have introduced exhibit themes that highlight the elements of art, which are line, shape, space, texture, value, form and color.  In turn, we have arrived at color. The hue, saturation and intensity of color determine its overall feel or impact. Here we asked artists to focus on the power and significance of color in their imagery.  It may be bold or subtle, warm or cool, calming or exciting. Color can speak volumes!

“Color is a power which directly influences the soul.” ― Wassily Kandinsky
