DESCRIPTION

Expressions Gallery Arts and Educational Center, a 501 C 3 non-profit organization presents, "Does Color Matter?"

October 24, 2015 – January 8, 2016. “Does Color Matter?” makes the viewers aware of the impact of color on all of us in various ways. Viewing abstract art clearly presents the importance of color in the creation of the artwork. Color, line and shape are the major ingredients. Without it, there would be no art. For artwork that is representational, color plays another role – that of creating impact and heightening the impact of the representational image. Another answer to this question is posed by devoting one room to artwork that is black and white. Here the absence of color also strengthens the presentation. It is interesting to stand amongst the art in these two different rooms and think about how color or the absence of it influences one. A third issue is also addressed in this show and that is the social issue of Does Color Matter? So much has been happening in our culture recently that has brought to our attention the discrimination and difference in the way we treat, perceive and value people of color. There are several artworks that speak to these issues and value people of color. Artworks include paintings, photography, digital art, collage, sculpture, crafts, glasswork, jewelry, fiber and textile art, and many other media used to create Art by over 50 local and international artists.
