Splash! tonight at Porter / Contemporary NY

Heading up for the opening tonight. Come by if you are in NYC this week. I have several pieces in the show! - Anne Marchand

 October 27 - December 3, 2011
Opening Reception with the Artists: 
Thursday, October 27, 7 - 9 PM
Porter Contemporary announces Splash!, a group exhibition of thirteen artists in various mediums focusing on color.  Porter Contemporary invites everyone to come in their most impressive colors and make their own splash! We invite you to dress in your boldest colors, wear colorful masks in true Halloween spirit, and enjoy the emotionally stirring effects of our colorful show.

From ancient Greek philosophers devising connotative meanings to different colors, to color theory principles found in Leonardo da Vince’s notebooks, and Isaac Newton’s theory of colors in the 18th century -- the energizing flow of light transcends time and continues to delight its viewers.  Amazingly, humans perceive over 2.8 million different hues. We invite you to let your eyes roam free following the emotionally stirring effects of our colorful show.

The exhibition focuses on thirteen artists’ ideas about color and how it manifests itself in the work. Artworks range in medium and include: photography, wood, watercolors, acrylics, oil, ceramics and other mixed medium items.
