THE EXHIBITION

This all media exhibition invites artists to submit works based on their use of a "colorless" palette. Sometimes a monochrome palette can say more than a full spectrum of color and create a striking contrast. Artists are invited to share work that is composed of a majority of black, white, and all shades in between.
