“Primary Colors” Opens @ Alexandria’s Del Ray Artisans

Betsy Mead’s “roll-up” vase

Opening with an artist reception on Friday, January 3, 2014 from 7-10pm is Primary Colors at Del Ray Artisans’ gallery in Alexandria, VA. This all area artist show kicks off the New Year with an artistic challenge to create artwork using only the three primary colors.
Curator and glass artist  Betsy Mead challenged Del Ray Artisans and all local-area artists to think outside the box in using basic red, yellow, and blue to create their compositions. The only restrictions were that artists must not tint or mix primary colors; they could use white and black to highlight, outline or lowlight objects in their compositions.

In conjunction with the Primary Colors exhibit, the non-profit artist group will feature the movie Primary Colors, a 1998 drama based on the novel Primary Colors: A Novel of Politics.
Opening Reception on Friday, January 3 from 7-10pm: Chat with the artists in the show and other art appreciators during the reception!
View the Show: January 3 РFebruary 2, 2014 during gallery hours at Del Ray Artisans gallery at the Nicholas A. Colasanto Center, 2704 Mount Vernon Avenue, Alexandria, Virginia 22301.
