Colour, a key element of design, fashion, decorating, marketing, psychology, art therapy and much more, is clearly a significant component of art creation as well. Artists always used colour to express not just what they observe in their surroundings but also to express their feelings, provoke an emotional reaction in a viewer, or simply create an esthetically pleasing composition.
Effect and language of colour influences our everyday life on many levels. It s a tool to express desires, intentions, it provoke reactions and influences our decision making – sometimes in an obvious way and sometimes in a very subtle way. Nature provides great inspiration for the use of colour. Each season definitely has its colour scheme. Our long northern winters are perfect time to explore colour in its many shades.
Art in Bloom
Fundraising Event: April 26, 2019
Art in Bloom has been a popular event at many art galleries and museums across North America for many years. The AGA will be presenting this exhibition and event for the fourth time. It grew in popularity in our community and fast became an appropriate event to mark and celebrate the arrival of spring.
The artworks for this exhibition were selected from our permanent collection based on the use of colour and shapes, some more obvious, some challenging, some more inspiring choices – all to be an inspiration for floral creations.
Public Opening is on February 8th, 2019
This is a call to all Art Gallery of Algoma members and art collectors! The AGA would like to have an exhibition of artwork in your personal art collections. What pieces do you have in your home that you love, that you have acquired over the years or have in the family for many years? This is a chance to showcase your personal love and appreciation for the artwork that you enjoy in your home every day. We are hoping to gather a large range of works from possibly all corners of the world! Paintings, drawings, mixed media, sculptures, fabric works, and all other art forms are eligible. The only rule is that the art needs to be original, not a copy.
If you are interested in participating and to get more information about this exhibition, please contact the AGA Director Jasmina Jovanovic at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to seeing the treasures hidden in personal art collections in Algoma!
