Electric Zest: TVAA Artists Bring Orange to Life
An Art Exhibition by TVAA at Nampa Civic Center
October 5, 2021 – January 11, 2022
Opening Reception October 22, 2021, 6-8 pm
TVAA Artists are being called to 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!
Creativity with the theme is always encouraged. We are asking for a maximum of 5 pieces per artist. Multiple artworks from a series are encouraged. Artist’s statement is very important. Please include an artist’s statement that details how each work is relevant to the theme (100 words or less). You may provide a separate artist’s biography or general statement (100 words or less). Our host, the Nampa Civic Center is a public all ages venue.
