A prism bends light - taking in white light, refracting it, and revealing a mind-boggling spectrum of color. Prism Play will allow gallery visitors to view a vibrant spectrum of color almost as though they were standing inside a prism.
We will be working with the Joen Wolfrom color tool in representing the full spectrum of color from warm red through orange, yellow, and green to blue, and violet. As envisioned by curator Cara Gulati, the show would include 5-6 color spectrums, hung continuously around the gallery walls for a total of 60 - 72 quilts. The ultimate result will be an exhibition that vibrates with color.
Each artist participating in Prism Play will develop work based exclusively on a single color and its tints, shades, and tones. No pure white or pure black may be used. All submissions must be uniform in size - a long narrow panel measuring 45” H X 15” W.
There are no other restrictions in terms of theme or subject matter.
