International Deadline: April 22, 2018 – To match or not to match, that is the question!
There are varying answers, viewpoints and even more questions
surrounding that age old query that has the ability to make many an
artist cringe. Should you buy a piece of art because it will compliment
your décor or because you like it? Is it taboo to commission an artist
to create an artwork to compliment the color scheme of a room? How do
interior designers select art for the spaces they design? How does color
theory play a role in the creation of art? How does the color palette
of a space affect your mood?
In this whimsical summertime exhibition, Does It Match the Couch? A
Juried Exploration of Color, we will delve into all those questions and
more. The walls of the Main Gallery will be lined with couches from
local furniture establishments and the artwork will be installed
strategically behind them, or if sculptural, placed nearby. Plus, we
will be offering Lifelong Learning Series educational programs to fuel
the inner artist and interior designer in us all.
So let’s explore the notion, should artwork be selected for its intrinsic value or just to match the color of one’s couch?
Exhibition: June 1, 2018 – September 2, 2018.
For this juried exhibition all visual arts media applications will be
considered (drawing, print, painting, mixed media work, photography,
