Students and Alumni Featured in POLYPHONICS

Posted: Fri, 2014-11-28 01:41

POLYPHONICS refers to the harmony of two or more textures in a melodious composition. This exhibit is to explore harmony between colours or chords. Unless working with light, artists work in a subtractive colour model to achieve these distinct ideas. Explorations are of colour harmonies such as cool, warm, complementary, analogous, monochromatic, or triadic, to create a whole concept. Works presented are largely involving multimedia imagery whether mimicking, projecting, or displaying.

This exhibition will show projects of emerging local artists in a variety of formats including media, installation, and painting.

Saturday, December 13 | 7pm
The James Black Gallery | 144 East 6th Avenue, Vancouver, BC
