We are excited to announce our 1st National Juried Art Show - Black and White, for the month of November at Paper Birch Landing Gallery.
We are privledged to have powerhouse artist, teacher and writer, Polly McCann of Interurban Art House, as our Juror for the Black and White Show. With her guidance, we look forward to a spectacular show.
Day after day, we bask in the beauty of color after color. Daily, our brains are bombarded with Bright Blues, Happy Yellows, Calming Greens, Royal Purples, Angry Reds, Shocking Oranges, and the list goes on....
Black and White is as simplistic, as it is primal, as it is complex. The use of these two extremes on the spectrum encourages us to focus on the composition and subject within the piece. By pulling out colors that resonate such as blue for water, yellow for sun, we show that sometimes simplicity is far more complex than using the full spectrum of color.
For this competition, artists are encouraged to submit their best art and photography using black, white and nuanced shades in between. This competition is open to all mediums. Artists outside of the Kansas City area, that are not able to drop off/pick up artwork is chosen for this show, will be responsible for shipping to the gallery and shipping cost upon return of work if it is not sold during the show.
Entries are open until October 5th. Top 20 pieces will be selected for this show. Artists selected will have an opening night reception on the 2cnd week of November. Show will run the month of November at Paper Birch Landing Gallery, at the new location at 405 East 19th Ave in North Kansas City. (Just a ten minute drive from downtown KCMO)
