Now open for viewing, CHAUVET Arts will present "Afterimage: Sensations of Color," a group show celebrating the lasting impact artists create through color. Named after the optical illusion in which an image lingers even after the viewer has looked away, "Afterimage" encourages viewers to explore their individual responses to a variety of vibrant artworks and the mental and emotional afterimages they produce.
"The purpose of this exhibition is to create an experience for our visitors that extends beyond what they see in front of them," said Jorge Arrieta, owner and director of CHAUVET Arts. "We want to use color to ignite an enjoyable response that preserves the art in the viewer's mind. It's also a great way to bring color into the colder months and breathe some life and optimism into 2021."
CHAUVET Arts is excited to feature an array of artists new to the gallery, including local painters Gina Julian and Corinne Cascioppo as well as Cuban painter and photographer Carlos Gamez de Francisco, Canadian-American mixed-media artist and designer Michael Soltis, Hawaii-born printmaker Nicole Dikon and New Zealand-based AI artist Tom White. The exhibition will also include several newly-acquired pieces by renowned artist Brother Mel Meyer and local artist Brenna Therese.
