Gallery Opening Reception - January 13, 1-4p
"To work only in black and white is a challenge for the artist. It forces them to express their thoughts and ideas without the use of the colors which are so fundamental to our view of the world. Only black, white and shades of grey can be used to express their vision.
Texture, rhythm and movement take on greater meaning as we are forced to perceive without the benefit of the color that normally enhances our everyday life. We must participate in the work by providing an emotional color of our own. All good art plunges us into our own experiences. A black and white presentation can make us delve even deeper."
An Exhibition of Regional Artists Exploring Artistic Expression through use of only Black, White, and Gray Scales. Works of regional artists are selected each year for participation in this exhibition. Originality and artistic quality are one of the main, but not the sole criteria used to select final works for the exhibition, other factors also contribute to our juried decision. Moreover, we try to include a variety of media, subjects, and artistic styles all to ensure we provide artists with an opportunity to develop further artistic vision, collaboration, presentation, and new ideas for their own future works, while building relations and collaborations with other regional artists.
