Splash! at Porter Contemporary

Splash! at Porter Contemporary

 October 27 - December 3, 2011
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.
