Call For Entries: The Power of Color

The Power of Color III is an exhibition that will explore color in the creation of artwork. Sometimes we use the same colors in all of our work, avoid others and use others to cue our viewers in to our meaning in creating a specific piece. Sometimes we make statements with color. We will consider all fine art 2D and 3D mediums: drawing, painting, photography and mixed media in all styles. All artists must live within the Washington DC metropolitan area. All work must be for sale, original, and created by the artist.
