Forty-five years ago, the Palo Alto Art Center opened its doors with an exhibition exploring the conceptual use of color by Bay Area artists.
On Friday, January 27 from 7:00 to 10:00 pm, the center will be celebrating the occasion with a reception for the current group exhibition, Spectral Hues: artists + color. A painting by Menlo Park-based artist Mitchell Johnson is included (Piaggio, 2009-2012, 78 by 120 inches, oil/linen) in the exhibit.
Food will be provided by The Ham Stand. There a cash bar and colorful art activities. Colorful attire is encouraged!
Spectral Hues examines light and color in the work of today’s Bay Area artists by featuring a selection of works that explore the presence, or lack, of color along with the optical and emotional influence of color on the viewer, and the interaction of light and color. This exhibition is guest curated by Sharon Bliss.
The Art Center is located at Newell and Embarcadero. The exhibition runs through April 8. There is also an artists panel discussion Sunday, March 5, at 2:00 pm.
