New York Society of Women Artists: The Primacy of Color III
The New York Society of Women Artists is a group of professional women painters and sculptors. They share a love for the emotive, symbolic and psychological aspects of color, with points of view that range from the recognizable to full dynamic abstraction.  Many of the artists separate color from its descriptive representational purpose and allow it to exist on the surface as an independent element.  Whether seeking simplicity, complexity, clarity, balance or discord, mood or description, color plays a vital pivotal role in each visual artist’s thinking.

Opening reception………… Saturday, June 3 ……….. 4-6pm
Artist talk Saturday, June 17 from 11am-Noon
