Color. Everybody wants some during a Northern Michigan winter, when short, light days suggest a seasonal monochromatic palette. Showcasing the work of 29 artists, COLOR, the exhibition, is a celebration of chroma, hue, tone, tint, and value. Color – both the thing and the idea – is more than just a seasonal picker-upper. The 29 COLOR exhibitors explore how is color used to express emotion, tension, shape, energy, action and gesture; how color tells a story.* And, what happens when the artist chooses to invent a palette for the subject – rather than be dictated to by the scene? How do original color choices change or invigorate an idea? Remove it from its most familiar context to suggest other ideas?

*When Dorothy was transported from the black + whiteness of her home in Kansas to the Technicolor world of Oz, the script flipped, didn’t it.
