“Absence of Color IV”
Reception 7-9 p.m.

“Absence of Color IV” on Display June 6th – July 15th. Works by Jean B. Carter, Steven Faucher, John Hayes-Nikas, Alla Lazebnik, and Janet Schwartz.
Artists working in color are taught to get the values right, the harmony of light and dark is often the foundation that supports color and most artwork will translate well into a monochrome or black and white image.
In this exhibition five artists come together with paintings, mixed media, woodcuts and drawings to celebrate the power and harmony that can be achieved by working only with darks, lights, and midtones. In all of this work it can be seen that something very meaningful is gained by the absence of color. There is a purity in the elegant balancing of tonality and it can be understood as reality having been stripped down to its bare essentials.
