Red, red, red!
This juried competiton is about the power of the color RED. All art presented in the exhibition incorporates some utilization of RED with reference to the dynamic energy of this attractive color. Red is a powerful color around the globe and connotes much symbolism – it signifies energy, action, anger, rage, determination, desire, and passion. It is stimulating, exciting and motivating, attention getting, and assertive.
Red is one of the top two favorite colors of all people. Red is the most popular color used on flags in the world. Red is also the international color for “stop.” Over 100 pieces of art created by 48 artists were submitted for consideration by our juror for this exhibition and competition for selection into “Seeing Red” was very strong. The exhibition will show 38 OUTSTANDING pieces of art featuring RED. Our juror, Ann Rintz, has an MFA in Visual Art, is a Professor of Fine Art at the College of Lake County in Grayslake IL and is the Founder of Cyan Design + Communications. She is also the Curator of the Robert T Wright Gallery of Art at the College of Lake County.
