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

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.
