COLOR Exhibit at the Glen Arbor Arts Center

  • About

    The Glen Arbor Arts Center (GAAC) injects COLOR into the New Year with an exhibition celebrating chroma, hue, tone, tint, and value by 29 artists. COLOR opens on Friday, January 10th and runs through Thursday, March 26th. There will be an opening reception for this exhibition on Friday, January 10th from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM in the gallery.

    Color – both the thing and the idea – is more than a seasonal picker-upper. COLOR exhibitors explore how color is used to express emotion, tension, energy, and action; how color can tell a story. What happens when the artist chooses to invent a palette for the subject – rather than be dictated to by the scene? COLOR exhibitors explore all these ideas and more.

    The exhibition is accompanied by two gallery events:

    January 19th at 2:00 PM: Color in the Garden — How to bring more color into the home garden using native plants. This is a free event.

    February 12th at 12:00 PM: A Short History of Color in Painting — An art historical look at how artists have used color from the 16th century to the present. Tickets: $10 for GAAC members, $15 for non-members. Reservations are required.
