The gallery space at the Jamestown Arts Center has become one of the most exciting places to experience art and design in southern Rhode Island.

Upcoming Exhibitions

Blanc de Blanc – 2016 Summer Soirée Exhibition

07/01/2016

THIS CALL FOR ARTISTS IS NOW CLOSED.

Blanc de Blanc, 2016 Summer Soirée Exhibition

Throughout history, artists have used the color white or lack of color to highlight significance in their art. From Henry Ossawa Tanner’s bold white strokes of light in a dark interior to Agnes Martin’s muted transcendental palette, to Barbara Hepworth’s cool marble and cast forms, artists have boldly displayed the emotional power of white to convey their many intentions. Blanc de Blanc investigates artists’ deliberate use of white in their artwork. Why is white, lack of color or a muted palette important or a central theme of the work? Is there a special significance to the color white in the artwork?

Open to all mediums, including video and installation. Jurors: Nezka Pfeifer, Curator, Everhart Museum and Rita Reamer, Designer.
