Red. The color with the longest wavelength in the visible light spectrum. The color of ambulances and fire trucks. Of Barns. Of blood. And of love. “If one says “Red” (the name of a color) and there are 50 people listening, it can be expected that there will be 50 reds in their minds,” writes Josef Albers. “And one can be sure that all these reds will be very different.”
This winter, the artists of Washington Printmakers Gallery explore this extraordinary color – how to use it, how to shape it, and how to interpret the many things the color red connotes.
At a time when DC museums must be closed, this gallery can be open allowing visitors to see the show in person as well as online.
Artists include: Lila Oliver Asher – Robert Burgess – Sally Canzoneri – Clara Young Kim – Rosemary Cooley – Marie B Cilia de Amicis – Amy Guadagnoli – Robert Hunter – Ron Meick – Nina Muys – Deborah Schindler – Matina Marki Tillman – Sandra Chen Weinstein
