MAY 13 – JULY 3, 2021:  MONOCHROMATIC ART SHOW, Annex Gallery

Monochromatic and monotone is so much more than black & white or grayscale. Monochrome simply means ‘of one color’ ‘what color’ is, is entirely up to you. Color can change the mood and flow of an image to evoke a unique mood. Color can be bright and vibrant, even if it is only one scale. 

The following requirements must be adhered to: accepted work must consist of one color with varying shades of the same color; all work must be framed and wire hung. 2D works including photography, painting, drawing, and mixed media will be accepted.
