Courage In Color (Arlington, VA) – Call For Artists

Courage In Color (Arlington, VA) – Call For Artists

[Sponsored Listing] Gallery Underground announces a call for artists for Courage In Color. Submit artwork which depicts your individual courageous use of color. Open to all mediums, 2D and 3D.

Many of the most influential modern art movements relied on the daring, innovative, and often shocking use of color. Whether it was the bold and non-naturalist colors of Fauvism to the unmixed primary colors of the Impressionists to depict reflected light, these movements used color in new and courageous ways defying the accepted concepts of what constituted art.
