Black and white…a classic combination! Some people “think” in black and white; others “wear” black and white; photographers “shoot” in black and white; and artists “sketch” in black and white. What about you?

“On a surface, black and white and gradations of gray evoke meanings distinct from colors alone.  They can create powerful cultural responses in the viewer.  Adding an accent color to the artist’s tools of shape, line and texture contributes a new perspective.” ~ Tolly Hicks

Seventeen artists explore this month’s theme through charcoal, paint, photography, mixed media, glass, mosaic and beads. These include Nancy Bennett, Jeff Doll, Clea Hall, Tolly Hicks, Lee McConnell, Karen Jones Meadows, Harriet Neal, Rebecca Nolda, Ray Ortiz, Steve Palmer, Marcia Rackstraw, Gayle Elaine Scott, Alfons Schuster, Michael Stoy, Pam Troutman, Fehrunissa Willett, Berna Woods. This exhibit has been coordinated by Placitas artist Linda Nisenbaum.

“Black and White” is part of the 2018 series of theme related exhibitions presented by the Placitas Community Library’s Art committee. The community is invited to attend the artists’ reception on Friday, July 13 from 5-7 pm.

Works in the exhibit are available for purchase, and a portion of each sale benefits the Placitas Community Library’s general fund.

The theme for the August exhibit is “Painting Placitas”.
