The Southern Shore Art Association announces an artistic collaboration with the Dunes Arts Foundation along with their opening production of "Red". This exhibit is open to multiple interpretations in any media and may be executed as abstract, realistic or representational. All art forms will be accepted: paintings, photographs, glasswork, sculpture and fiberwork. "SEEING RED" will be open to all expressions of the many aspects of the color. Red is the color of extremes. It is the color of passionate love, seduction, violence, danger, anger, and adventure. Our prehistoric ancestors saw red as the color of fire and blood – energy and primal life forces. This is a member/guest exhibit and we encourage all artists to apply and join us as an exhibiting artist.
Special Notes: All work should be ready to hang with the exception of glass and sculpture. Artwork should have professional wire with the wire ends taped (sawtooth hangers or hooks are not acceptable). Artwork must not have been created in a class or workshop and must be original to the exhibiting artist. All work must be available for sale. Space determines if all of your pieces will be displayed.
