By Special to the Monitor

“Red Dominant” features two- and three-dimensional works in many mediums including fiber, colored pencil, photography, acrylic, oil, watercolor, stained glass, wood and pastel, all with the color red foremost. Because the show’s guidelines center on a color, artists have exercised a great deal of creativity, such as in a trio of red fused glass-topped tables by Trish Reed and a face-shaped mirror framed with red wooden “hair” by Gerrit Van Ness.Art is hard-pressed to be considered art without color, but artists have long challenged themselves by limiting their palettes. The artists of “Red Dominant” join post-modern or minimalist artists like Yves Klein, Ad Reinhardt and John Virtue—all painters known for restricting themselves to limited color. Yves Klein even patented a color of blue he called “International Klein Blue” that he used almost exclusively in many of his later paintings.Like Klein, Reinhardt and Virtue, many of the artists in the show have restricted themselves to monochromatic content—variations of a red hue. “Red Moose” by Tom Alvarez, “Red Face” by Beth Ferguson, the fiber art of Renee Brainard Gentz and beaded jewelry by Rebecca Estep all explore a monochromatic palette.
