The Huntington Museum of Art will open the fourth exhibit in a two-year series on the basic building blocks of art when The Visual Elements: Color Presented by Garth’s Auctioneers & Appraisers goes on view on Saturday, August 12, 2023. This exhibit, which features a dozen works, continues on view at HMA through November 19, 2023.
“Color represents the visual perception of certain visible wavelengths of electromagnetic energy. It can be manipulated by artists to describe, evoke, or provoke,” said John Farley, HMA Senior Curator / Exhibition Designer. “Interpreting aspects of color is often fundamental to the viewer’s appreciation and enjoyment of visual artworks.”
Some of the artists whose works are represented in this exhibit include Josef Albers, Helen Frankenthaler, Wassily Kandinsky, in addition to two former Walter Gropius Master Artists – Dan Mitchell Allison and Robert Berlind. The three previous exhibits in this series have focused on the artistic elements of line; shape & form; and value.
This exhibit is presented by Garth’s Auctioneers & Appraisers.
This exhibit is presented with support from the City of Huntington Mayor’s Council for the Arts.
