I recently found this interesting exhibition taking place at the Fountain Gallery in downtown Lafayette. The reception is taking place this Thursday from 5:30-7!
There is said to be never before seen work from the Purdue permanent collection on display! If you are a designer, artist, or all around color enthusiast, there will be neat work over color theory that you won’t want to miss.
Color Expressions: Art and Design Perspectives
March 7 through April 22, 2017
Fountain Gallery, Lafayette
Opening Reception: Thursday, March 9, 5:30 – 7 pm, with comments by the curator in the gallery.
The permanent collection of Purdue University Galleries is home to artworks that represent exciting approaches to color usage. Color plays an important role in art and design, as it affects our visual experiences by building identities, engaging the senses, and fostering conscious and unconscious thinking patterns.
Curated by Petronio Bendito, Ed.D. Associate Professor in Purdue’s Department of Art and Design, this exhibition showcases a broad range of approaches in which the artists combined colors in expressive and evocative ways. It features a selection of works that Bendito identified while surveying the Collection for his research on color design methods, presented in thought-provoking groupings.

I’ll be attending the reception on Thursday & I hope to see some of you there. Coffee discussion after at a nearby cafe? Comment if you’re interested.
