ART247
(formerly Market Street Art Studios) presents:

Black and White | Exhibition 2018


JANUARY 13 - FEBRUARY 11
GALLERY OPENING RECEPTION - JANUARY 13, 1-4P

FREE ADMISSION

To work only in black and white is a challenge for the artist. It forces them to express their thoughts and ideas without the use of the colors which are so fundamental to our view of the world. Only black, white and shades of grey can be used to express their vision.

Texture, rhythm and movement take on greater meaning as we are forced to perceive without the benefit of the color that normally enhances our everyday life. We must participate in the work by providing an emotional color of our own. All good art plunges us into our own experiences. A black and white presentation can make us delve even deeper.                    
2017 First Place Award Winner Nikki Milley "THE DREAM," Graphite.

An Exhibition of Regional Artists Exploring Artistic Expression through use of only Black, White, and Gray Scales. Works of regional artists are selected each year for participation in this exhibition. Originality and artistic quality are one of the main, but not the sole criteria used to select final works for the exhibition, other factors also contribute to our juried decision. Moreover, we try to include a variety of media, subjects, and artistic styles all to ensure we provide artists with an opportunity to develop further artistic vision, collaboration, presentation, and new ideas for their own future works, while building relations and collaborations with other regional artists. This show features works in Oil Paints, Pastels, Drawing, Ink, Mixed Media, Sculpture, Acrylics, and Watercolor.

This year's show brings with it some added dimension in the personal emotions brought to some of our artists' works as they explore the depths of their own inner conflicts between happiness, sadness, depression, PTSD, and the gray areas between, developed and transformed into thought provoking and inspiring works of visual art.

2017 Third Place Award Winner Sally Johnson "MIDNIGHT DREAMS," Acrylic Triptych.
