"Color, Line & Form" Exhibition, Fine Arts Center of Hot Springs, Sept 5 - Oct 25

September 04, 2014

This art exhibition explores the visual landscape of color, line, form and texture.  Curators Julie Susan Gonzales, Jeri Hillis, and Donna Dunnahoe selected 41 abstract art works from 153 submissions from artists across the United States for this exhibition titled "Color, Line & Form."  The exhibit includes paintings, hand pulled prints, fiber art, photography and sculptures.  My piece that was selected is a digital negative of 4th of July fireworks celebration in New York City in 2012.  The reversal of color gives this image an abstract appearance that appears to resemble a floral arrangement.

 

The 36 artists represented in the show include:Karen Ahuja, Joel Armstrong, Allyson Block, Roxanne Butterfield, Barbara Cade, Emily Denlinger, John Faginkrantz, Margaret Foote, James Daniel Gaar, George Grubb, Bob Harvey, Jonny Haydn, Pat Langewis, Lane Last, Russell Lemond, Diane Lorio, Bryan Massey, Sayeed Mehmood, Elizabeth Morisette, Earl Mulley, Loretta Lynn Owens , Alan D. Pocaro, Desiree Quinn, Allison Rosh, Cynthia Schanink, Jane Skafte, Mike Spain, Gertrude Tara-Casciano, Roxy Rose Wallace, Jane Bonady Watson, Mark Webster, Cathy Wester, Susan Whiteland, and Ray Wittenberg.
