Spectrum

October 14, 2011 - November 7, 2011

The pieces in Spectrum were chosen from 150 submissions. Exploring the spectrum of color as well as a spectrum of subject matter – from geometry and texture to illustration and portraiture – the show covers the breadth of fabric8's program while also featuring artists that haven't shown there regularly. The jury consisted of several painters that the gallery works with frequently.

Simultaneously, new pieces were introduced in the sculpture garden from artists Calvin Ma, Shadoe Delgado, and Erika Sanada.
