The Language of Color 2024

The human eye can perceive millions of different colors. Now more than ever color is playing a central role in everyday communication, for cultural expression and social / personal communications.  Color has it’s own language and colors are symbolic, carrying meaning to helps us to understand or express ourselves thru our imagery, whether bright, bold colors expressing joy, or dark, subdued tones expressing fragility or somberness.

For this CFE we аre interested in the ways we, as photographers, make meaning in our increasingly “Technicolor” world. Show us your best color images!

Thirty images will be selected and installed as unframed prints in our Maloof Gallery.

The Maloof Gallery, named after long-time APG patron’s Ted and Gloria Maloof, supports seven group exhibitions and 4 solo exhibitions per year.

The print size for selected artwork on the long side will be limited to 24” or less, but no framing or matting will be required. These prints will be installed using magnets. If you need a local printing service, we recommend our partner, Digital Arts Studio.
