Is color the same everywhere for everyone?
What does color “mean”?
How have artists attempted to control color?
These questions are just a few of those posed by a rich and varied exhibition at the Victoria Myrhen Gallery at the University of Denver’s School of Art & Art History, opening next week, January 14th. Contemporary artists from throughout the United States as well as modern masters like Josef Albers and Helen Frankenthaler will have work on display that explores the complexity and nuance of color in art.
This show is co-curated by Jeffrey Keith, a renowned visual artist, color theory expert and University of Denver professor (and my former mentor), and Dan Jacobs, the Director of the Victoria Myrhen Gallery.
For those of you in the Denver area, or with plans to travel there soon, this show is a must-see! For more information, go to http://vicki-myhren-gallery.du.edu/.
