And shades in between...
‘Black and White Encore’ opens at League of NH CraftsmenJanuary 10. 2018 1:04PM
CONCORD — While colors can draw out meaning and emotion in art, its absence can have the same effect, communicating a different set of moods and beauty.
The League of NH Craftsmen challenged its juried members to create works in black, white and shades in between, with just a pop of color if desired.
The result is the league’s latest multimedia exhibition, “Black and White Encore,” which opens Friday and will hang through March 28 at the Exhibition Gallery at the league’s Concord headquarters, 49 S. Main St.
The exhibition will feature handcrafted art from more than 40 artists and artisans. Items will include wood folk art, fiber wall hangings, African ceremonial pieces, scenic photography, hats, shawls and scarves, and glass and clay vases and sculptures.
“The minimalist use of black and white provides sharp contrast, enhancing the use of form, line and texture,” said League Standards Manager Catherine Green.
The public can meet and speak with the artists and craftsmen during the exhibition’s opening reception Friday from 5 to 7 p.m.
The gallery’s regular hours are Mondays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 .pm.
