May exhibition: krōmə


noun: chroma

1. purity or intensity of color.

The Downtown Artist Collective presents krōmə featuring works from artists Céline Downen, Micah Payan and Miroslava Vomela. The exhibit runs from May 17 through June 14 at 258 East 100 South, with an opening reception on Friday, May 17th from 6 to 9pm.

All three artists explore the use of color and how it relates to emotions, defines a sense of place, and affects mood. Downen uses the cyanotype photographic process, which produces rich blues. Her current series presents simple meditations in blue, silhouettes of specimens that reflect and connect to her family. Payan’s photographs explore the importance of color in portraying emotion within a narrative outside of reality. Vomela layers hand-cut found images with other media such as acrylic paint, pen and ink, and colored pencil to create harmonious color palettes.

The Gallery will be open Saturdays and Sundays from 2pm to 6pm or by appointment.
