Art Exhibit "Visions in Black, White and Red"
Works by SALUTE to Women in the Arts
Teaneck, NJ (November 18, 2004) —Creativity and unity will be at the forefront of the “Visions in Black, White and Red” exhibit at the Edward Williams Gallery on Fairleigh Dickinson University’s Metropolitan campus in Hackensack from December 6, 2004 through January 14, 2005.
All the exhibited works are by members of SALUTE to Women in the Arts. The artists were challenged to create two-dimensional works of art using a limited color palate of black, white and red. All art in the show measures18 x 24”, giving a unifying effect to the exhibition. Subject matter and media, however, were not limited, and the creative imagination of SALUTE’S talented artists is apparent in art that is traditional as well as contemporary in approach.
Curator of the exhibit, SALUTE member artist Ruth Bauer Neustadter, noted the challenges faced by artists in creating art for this exhibit; “On first inspection the idea of creating work with only three colors and of a specific size, one could feel trapped, limited, bound by restrictions, but the artwork produced demonstrates the vastness of people’s imaginations and creativity when given limitations. Certainly, SALUTE has not done anything like this before, and I am excited to hang a show that has, at the same time, such unity and enormous diversity.”
The Gallery in Edward Williams Hall at Fairleigh Dickinson University’s Metropolitan Campus is located at 150 Kotte Place, Hackensack. The Gallery hours are Monday-Friday 8:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. and Saturday 9:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. The exhibit is free and open to the public. For more information call 201-692-7028.
