Stamford Art Association announces a call for artists for the 37th Faber Birren Color Show.

Call for artists application / registration

Deadline: 23 Jul 2017

In 1980, Faber Birren, world renowned color consultant and author of twenty-seven books on color, endowed the Faber Birren Color Award of $1000 for original and creative expression of color. The Faber Birren Color Award Show has grown from a regional exhibit to one of national scope, encouraging artists in all media. This competition is the only artistic event devoted exclusively to the use of color. This year the Stamford Art Association celebrates its 37th year of the Faber Birren National Color Award Show. Wall work and sculpture are accepted. No performance art or 3D should be submitted. Artwork must be framed and wired for hanging.


37th Faber Birren Color Show prizes are funded by an original endowment and usually exceed $2,000. This exhibit encourages artists to concentrate only on color. The exhibit attracts over 1,000 visitors and is an extraordinary way to have artwork displayed. It is an international show that allows artists to be judged by a juror with major NYC gallery and museum experience. This is an opportunity to put your art on the wall with artists who have work displayed across the US and in museums. Where else can you show your best colors? This yearly exhibit provides great exposure to artists in an geographical area that has many art collectors.
