Reception/First Tuesday ArtWalk:

[Art: Marine Strage, Design: Jeremy Thornton]
We invited artists to explore how expressive they can be utilizing a single base hue but employing as many of its shades, tones and tints as they require.
Monochromatic colors are all the colors of a single hue. Monochromatic color schemes are derived from a single base hue and extended using its shades, tones and tints.
For example, in the Blue spectrum we have Azure, Cobalt, Cerulean, Ultramarine, etc. Reds might include Garnet, Crimson, Rose…the possibilities for explorations within each hue are endless. [Black and White compositions ARE Monochromatic.]
A few well-known artists who have explored the possibilities of working in monochrome include: Agnes Martin, Mark Rothko and Gerhard Richter.
This show is presented as two concurrent exhibitions with the same theme and same juror, this one in-person and the other online. Artists are free to submit works to both shows.
