The dA Center for the Arts is proud to present the 25th Annual Simply Red group exhibition. For our first open show this year, the public has been invited to submit any art piece that explores some aspects of the color red. This exhibition will be on display February 11 through February 25, 2012. The dA will be hosting an opening reception during the Pomona Arts Colony Second Saturday Art Walk on February 11th from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm.
Celebrating it’s 25th year, Simply Red has become a staple in the Pomona Arts Colony as well as the dA's most eagerly anticipated exhibition each year. The origins of the exhibition date back to the late 80's at the dA’s prior location. The aim was to find a theme for a group show in which everyone could participate while loosely coupling it with Valentines Day, its correlating holiday. Red was the resulting verdict, and the resulting show only required that submissions included at least one dot of red.
It has since grown to become the dA's longest running exhibition. It’s all inclusive nature made it the perfect setting for both new and seasoned artist to participate in year after year, as well as providing a setting for the entire Pomona Arts Colony to come together and celebrate the long lasting tradition.
