SARTQ: RED exhibition, will fill the beautiful Palmetto Art Center with glowing color. Whether scarlet, crimson, maroon, vermilion, berry, ruby, rose, burgundy, carmine, brick, or cerise – red is both satisfying and exciting. The strong feelings suggested by the color red – passionate love, blood and anger – are always stimulating!

“A thimble full of red is redder than a bucketful.” – Henri Matisse

The 10 artists in the exhibition celebrate the many ways to see the color red. “Red can boost your energy, it exudes confidence and is life-affirming. In addition, this exhibition gives all art lovers something different to do with their sweethearts for their Valentine’s celebration,” says SARTQ co-founder Tim Jaeger.

The artwork in this group show includes printmaking, collage, drawing, video installation, sculpture and painting. In addition, FREE red silk screened prints will be made for the public right before their eyes while meeting the members of SARTQ. Attendees may bring their own clothing items such as t-shirts, pants, scarfs etc., though any item that can lie flat under the screen and will accept ink can be printed on.
