Opening tonight from 5 to 8pm the Asheville Area Arts Council is excited to host 16 artists in a new exhibit by curator Barbara Fisher called Who’s Afraid of RED? The title is inspired by a series of Barnett Newman paintings called Who’s Afraid of Red, Yellow and Blue.
This exhibit will explore the many meanings and associations to the color red: love, vitality, opulence, fire, the heart, the devil, blood, power, passion…. as well as the many uses of the word red in our language such as: red tape, red carpet, red-letter day, red herring, red ink, caught red-handed, red cent. Also, because of the expense of the dye, red cloaks and hats have been worn as status symbols throughout history. The associations are endless.Go HERE to find out the skinny. Cheers!
