Join us for an Opening Reception of the new exhibit “Winter White: An Absence of Color”, curated by Katharine Dufault.
This exhibit will present the work of more than a dozen contemporary artists whose use of white defines and unifies the work. Within the confines of the monochromatic palette, color is no longer the concern; rather texture, pattern, and shadow fall into play. White is produced when all the color wavelengths of visible light are reflected without absorption (the opposite of black which absorbs all light without reflection).
By complementing January’s winter palette of bleak skies and snow, the work will set forth a binary relationship between interior and exterior, artificial and organic, man- made and natural. The artists are both established and emerging, and work in a variety of media including paint, print, photography, glass, encaustic, fiber and mixed media. This is first time that The Rye Arts Center will present an exhibition of work that has been chosen based on a single color, or absence thereof, in this case: White.
This exhibit will be on view in The Rye Arts Center’s Gallery January 23 – March 5, 2016.
