Constellation Studios presents Rainbow, an exhibition of vibrant color and the study of its printed effects. Printmakers effectively use the blending of colors with “split fountains” and “rainbow rolls” for continuous gradations that belie the flatness of plate or block – that imply printed kitsch and bravura, creating dynamic spatial illusions. The printing of luminous layers create complex patterns, or individuated swatches of color steps – suggesting the multiplicity of individual parts adding to the whole, as a social metaphor or visual phenomenon. This exhibition is a glowing symphony of color at play and work in contemporary form. Nationally recognized artists include: Mildred Beltre, Vermont; Laura Berman, Missouri; Jeffrey Dell, Texas; Tim Dooley and Aaron Wilson as Midwest Pressed, Iowa; Juergen Strunck, Texas.
Join us at Constellation Studios for an opening reception on Friday, February 19, 7 – 9pm.
