Foothills Art Centers latest exhibit, STARK: Life in Black and White, is basically about what happens when you strip away color and its associations, says curator Michael Chavez, who selected five artists working in black and white. And theyre not all photographers, either, he notes. There is photography, but theres also painting, installation, drawing and video. Among the attractions is a site-specific wall painting by Mindy Bray that was commissioned specifically for this effort.
The reception for STARK takes place tonight from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at Foothills, 809 15th Street in Golden. A special feature of the event will be an interactive photo project by Greg Cradick from Working With Artists. Cradick will photograph attendees, take the resulting digitized images, turn them into black-and-whites, then load them onto a flat-screen TV. These portraits will be exhibited in a constantly changing slide show throughout the duration of the show. And to top it off, there will be prizes given out, among the highlights of which is a photo by STARK artist Chris Perez.
The exhibit continues through July 3; to find out more, call 303-279-3922 or go to www.foothillsartcenter.org.
