Art exhibit: Primary Colors

The Fendig Gallery has a new exhibit, Primary Colors. It contains work by the members of the Jasper County Art League and the pictures emphasize the primary colors of red, blue, and yellow. Below is one of the few sculptures (it may be the only one) in the exhibit. It has the primary colors in the collar.
 The painting of sunflowers captures the spirit of the show--bright and bold.
 The picture below is not a painting. It is done in fabric.
 The title of this red and blue painting is "First Wheels".
 On the beach in primary colors.
 Primary colors of red and yellow are highlighted here against a dark blue background in this painting of a girl drawing.
Mrs Lucas, known for her bird and nature pictures, was at the gallery when I visited. I had not seen any of her photographs so I asked why there were none there. She pointed me to the future of art exhibiting, a digital display that changes the picture every few seconds. She had about 50 photographs in the display--a whole art show in one square foot of wall space.
The exhibit runs until October 30. The opening reception will be on Saturday from 7:00 until 8:30 (which overlaps OktoberFest.)
