Welcome to Electric Zest! This is an online exhibition created by the Treasure Valley Artists Alliance.
TVAA Artists bring the color Orange to life. Love it or hate it, orange will get your attention! As the color most associated with the season of fall, from pumpkins to falling leaves, the theme for TVAA at Nampa Civic Center is right on time opening October 2021. However, orange can have many other cultural connotations; from safety cones and prison jumpsuits, to Dutch royalty, or Hindu and Buddhist robes. Differing shades of orange lend themselves too high energy imagery or warm glowing sunsets.
A few fun facts about Orange; In Optics, orange has a wavelength between approximately 585 and 620 nanometers and a hue of 30° in HSV color space. The word orange comes from the Arabic word Naranj. The Golden Gate Bridge is painted a shade called International Orange for its high visibility. And finally orange juice is the most popular juice in America!
Let’s see what we can imagine together!
