Primary Colors Exhibit


Primary colors, blue, yellow and red, are the colors from which all other colors can be made. Artists have used these colors as the basis for their artwork for centuries. The use of primary colors makes any work of art vibrant and exciting. We invite you to submit your artwork demonstrating the 
stunning effects of using a primary color palette with the colors blue, yellow and red being the primary artistic element. 

Artists age 18 and older are invited to submit artwork for consideration for this exhibit.
