Santa Clara Valley Watercolor Society Art Show: “Color!”
March 19-April 30
This annual art show with SCVWS will tell us all about colors. The exhibit will feature original water media art by local artists and feature a digital picture frame created by Bella Ravikumar that is programmed to be a teaching tool about every aspect of color. It will explain, for example: What makes color? What is the absence of color? What colors work well together and why? How does color create mood?
Admission to the exhibition is free.
Please join us on April 8 from 1:30-2:30pm for a walk through the exhibit with John Gianotti, an eminent local artist who is an instructor at the JCC. John will point out successful color strategies as represented by the paintings in the exhibit, and explain color theory as evidenced by the hanging paintings.
