Enter TWO Concurrent MONOCHROMATIC Shows!

One In-person, the other Online.
Both juried by Suzanne Gray of Seager Gray Gallery in Mill Valley

Artists are welcome to apply to BOTH shows. Since the online exhibition has the same theme as the in Gallery, you can submit the same work to both shows. You may also submit different work to each show. If you submit to both shows, TWO entry fees are required. The juror will make the final selections.



ABOUT THE JUROR: 
Suzanne Gray, a resident of Mill Valley, grew up in upstate New York and studied journalism and art history at Syracuse University and San Jose State. In 2011, she joined forces with Donna Seager and together they formed Seager Gray Gallery. She has overseen both commercial and residential programs and her knowledge of the art market, sophisticated eye and understanding of art placement have gained her the trust of her clients. As a curator, Gray has teamed with Seager to create the ambitious program of monthly exhibitions for which they have become known.  www.seagergray.com

Description:

One Color: Infinite Possibilities.
How expressive can you be utilizing a single base hue but employing as many of its shades, tones and tints as you require? Monochromatic colors are all the colors of a single hue. Monochromatic color schemes are derived from a single base hue and extended using its shades, tones and tints. For example, in the Blue spectrum we have Azure, Cobalt, Cerulean, Ultramarine, etc. Reds might include Garnet, Crimson, Rose…the possibilities for explorations within each hue are endless. [Black and White compositions ARE Monochromatic.]

For inspiration, consider a few well-known artists who explored the possibilities of working in monochrome: Agnes Martin, Mark Rothko and Gerhard Richter.

Contemporary, expressionistic, abstract, exploratory,
and/or experimental entries encouraged
O’Hanlon Center for the Arts emphasizes the creative process and the continued pursuit of meaning and authenticity through observation, exploration, and experimentation.
