Gray Matters

Gray Matters Jan ZelferRedmond Give No Quarter


August 11 – October 29, 2017

Gray sometimes gets a bad rap: a neutral color without the drama of either black or white. Gray is in the middle, uncommitted to either full darkness or bright light. On those occasions when it does gain a little drama, gray is still a negative. We look forward to the clearing of gray skies and dread the sight of that first gray hair.

The paintings, drawings, prints, and photographs selected for this exhibition show the great artistic range that gray can have. In some cases, gray is the dominant color within the artwork, while in others it provides necessary counterpoints or complements to other colors.
