Please join the Curator of the Silver Springs Art Gallery, Karen Genovese, on January 26, 2017     at 6 p.m. as she lectures and provides instruction on color theory. Color Theories create a logical structure for color.   Color theory encompasses a multitude of definitions, concepts, and design applications. However, there are three categories of color theory that provide a logical and useful framework: the color wheel, the color harmony, and the context of how colors are used. Sir Isaac Newton developed the first circular diagram of colors in 1666. Since, then scientists and artists have studied and designed variations on this color wheel. Color harmony can be defined as a pleasing arrangement of parts, whether it be music, poetry, color, or even an ice cream sundae. In visual experience, harmony is something that is pleasing to the eye. It engages the viewer and it creates an inner sense of order, a balance in the visual experience. Color context involves how color behaves in relation to other colors and shapes. The lecture is complimetary, but there is a nominal charge for admission to the Silver Springs State Park. Art supplies will be provided. Please RSVP to KarenG@silversprings.com. Space is limited to the first 20 people who respond.  The Silver Springs Art Gallery, 5656 E Silver Springs Blvd, Silver Springs, FL 34488.
