DESCRIPTION

Inspired by recent travels to Paris, Katherine Cone Gallery is pleased to present a summer group exhibition, titled Rouge. The exhibition consists of original works of art that will include the color red by renowned artists Edith BaumannSean CheethamJohn EdenEL MAC, Shepard FaireyJohn Van HamersveldBrad HoweEric PedersenDeWain Valentineand Suzan Woodruff.

Rouge, The French word for "red,” is a color commonly associated with passion, fire, beauty, danger, sacrifice, anger, and in some places happiness. It can be used as an expression, as in “seeing red” meaning to be enraged. Likewise, it can be a symbol of love and entertainment, such as the Moulin Rouge, a Paris cabaret known for it’s seductive dancing and famously marked by the red windmill on its roof. 

Whether it means anger to one or love to another or is envied simply for the beauty of the pigment itself, the color red carries a powerful energy with it. Each of these ten artists has defined in their own context what the color red signifies to them. Please join us for a reception for the artists Saturday, July 20th, from 6-9 p.m. TheRouge exhibition will run from July 20th until August 24th, 2013.
