City Art Gallery in Columbia, SC, Offers An Exhibition of Color by Gallery Artists

City Art Gallery in Columbia, SC, will present Color of City Art, featuring works by the artists of City Art Gallery on view from Jan. 20 through Feb. 28, 2014.

“It is 2014 and as Gallery Director and business owner I wanted to share some thoughts about the selection of artists that have been chosen to be a part of the ongoing exhibiting group at City Art and visiting artist exhibitors,” says Wendyth T. Wells. “There is not a week that has gone by since April of 1997 when the gallery known as City Art began its journey of the past sixteen years in which an artist or visitor has not inquired about the type of art that we represent. Only recently has the true answer to the question become evident to me. So, that having been said, what is the common element that draws an artist to us and vice versa? My answer begins with one word ‘color’.”

“Knowing that the common thread running throughout the variety of subject matter, styles, mediums and levels of skill is ‘color’ makes the eclectic continuity of the artwork on display suddenly make sense,” adds Wells. “All of the artists shown by City Art have the commonality of good color theory, which runs the gamut of palette in bright, monochromatic, high key, dark, primary and complex, hence the ‘color’ always dominates what is right about the work.”

“So, for the initial exhibit of 2014 we are bringing to the Main Gallery some examples of the ‘color’ of City Art artists for all to see what makes artists and their ‘color true talent’ work together. We hope that our friends and visitors and clients will enjoy this group of work and finally answer the most frequently asked question.”
