"Arbitrary Color" Call for Entry


Color can change a viewer's perception of practically anything. It impacts emotion, context, narrative, and one's personal psychological response. Open to all media, Arbitrary Color is a juried exhibition that explores not just the colors in artwork, but the entire color palette used to accentuate the concept of the work. In focusing on one specific element of design, Arbitrary Color challenges the artist in their execution of all principles and elements of art design. All entries are due by Monday, November 21, 2016. Arbitrary Color will open on Friday, January 20, 2017 with an opening reception from 6:00pm – 8:00pm. A gallery talk will be given prior to the reception at 5:30pm. Three awards will be given at the opening reception, two $200 juror’s choice awards and a $500 or Going Solo exhibition juror’s choice award. This exhibition closes on Friday, March 3, 2017. Calls for entry are available online at foundryartcentre.org or at the Foundry Art Centre, located at 520 North Main Center in St. Charles, Missouri.
