With winter’s closing, the sight of fresh grass, violet blooms, and exotic butterflies signal the arrival of a new season in truly polychromatic fashion. This Spring, Creative Growth Art Center invites you to consider the vibrancy of a bird’s wings or the intensity of a piece of cake in Living Color, an ode to color featuring over fifty artists.

This show will highlight the various ways in which color resides within our lives, from fashion design with Ron Veasey’s stylish portraits or Ying Gee Zhou’s colorful hair arrangements to the wonders of the natural world, as seen in Larry Randolph’s “Birds of the Stars” or Julie Swartout’s nearly-sculptural fruit arrangements. In other instances, artists create their own color arrangements, as in Paulino Martin’s grey cityscape turned pop-city or in Edward Walters’ colorful geometric landscape. These electric investigations of color will also be accompanied by an array of furniture, textiles, wood, and ceramic pieces, including Maureen Clay’s fantastic multicolored chair and Terri Bowden’s white ceramic ducks.

Bursting with recipes to awaken your eyes and taste buds, Gail Lewis’ Sweet Treats Cookbook will be available beginning May 5.
