Color Beyond Profusion: an Unexpected Collaborative Surprise
“Color Beyond Profusion: an Unexpected Collaborative Surprise” is an art collaboration by Karina Nishi Marcus and Jill Keller Peters. The exhibit opens Friday, Aug. 3, with an artist reception, 6 - 7:30 p.m., at the Sebastopol Center for the Arts. The show runs Aug. 3 - Sept. 9.
For this exhibit, three color palettes that stretch the artists’ customary quiver of colors were selected both by random and educated approaches. With this collaboration, Nishi and Keller Peters, both passionate colorists, treated color in dissimilar ways. They examined new avenues of employing color to express thought, concept and dreams that are channelled through their art.
The artists painted a work in each of the three color palettes and also co-produced collaborative pieces from each palette. Each of the co-selected palettes presented both problems and opportunities to explore and discover new adventures in the range and scope of the world of color. The collaborative paintings are fashioned in acrylic on canvas and paper.
The artists have not seen each other's individual works. The first time they will see the three triptychs together will be at the opening. Please come and be surprised along with the artists at this profusion of color.
