Join us for the Opening Reception of Jan Crooker's solo exhibit, "Color is the New Black".
"While many kids had favorite football and baseball heroes, mine were Van Gogh and Edward Hopper. As an adult, I have added Janet Fish and Wayne Thiebauld to my pantheon of influences. All these artists use color in an unique way and have inspired my interest finding my unique color use. I admire Van Gogh’s use of complementary color, Edward Hopper’s interest in contrast, Janet Fish’s love of transparent light, and Wayne Thiebauld’s play of color and light, and I look to utilize complementary color, contrast, transparency and playfulness into my own work and to make color the new black."
