Mar 12, 2009toMay 17, 2009

Art about Color, From Abstract to Real

curated by Beth Nichols
March 12th through May 17th

The exhibition will explore the many ways in which contemporary artists use color in their work. Steve Griffin describes his large abstract “Strata” paintings as including “all of the traditional visual elements of composition, shape, texture and color.
