Chromatopia – Open House
Gallery Vertigo is proud to present Chromatopia by the Fibre Art Network (FAN), a co-operative of Western Canadian artists committed to promoting fibre as an art form and each other as artists. An open house will be held Saturday, August 14 from noon to 4:00 p.m.
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 explores the colour spectrum while preserving the unique individualistic style of each artist. Each set of 2 pieces are textile/fibre pieces that reflect a unique theme of the individual artist depicted through two distinct monochromatic colour schemes. 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 and lower level artworks. The viewer will be drawn to the distinct themes explored by each individual artist while supporting the inclusivity of the spectrum.
Regular Gallery Hours are Tuesday through Saturday, noon to 4:00pm, and the exhibit runs from August 10 – September 4, 2021.
