The Summerland Art Gallery's first show of the 2024 season "Chromatopia", features 72 works by FAN, The Fibre Art Network, a co-operative bsed in Western Canada. CHROMATOPIA is inspired by Picasso's monochromatic works in his blue period. Each artist was challenged to explore their own individual theme through the creation of two monochromatic textile artworks using two assigned colour hues.
"The exhibition visually explore the colour spectrum while preserving the unique individualistic style of each artist. Each work is a 12" x 12" x 1/2" monochromatic canvas-wrapped textile/fibre piece. Pieces move through the spectrum in one direction on top and the reverse on the bottom. Together the exhibition will visually impact the viewer by the representation of the colour spectrum through both the upper level artworks and the lower."
This rainbow of fabric creations is sure to be a bright spot and lift your spirits in the dark days of winter.
The show runs from February 1st to March 16th, 2024 with an opening reception on Thursday, February 1st from 7 - 9 pm. The gallery is open Tuesday to Friday from 10 am to 4 pm.
