Colors are powerful and used in celebrations across cultures. Dias de los Muertos is a Mesoamerican tradition that celebrates life, or the lives of those who have died, and uses bright colors rich with symbolism in decorations. In India, a colorful, traditional folk art known as Rangoli consists of creating vibrant patterns during events and festivals such as Diwali or weddings. Across many cultures, the bright, rainbow flag is a modern symbol of equal rights and acceptance of the LGBTQ+ community. And, nature provides us with an exquisite canvas of her own, painting beautiful colors in the forests, seas, skies, and fields.
This Friday, April 12th, 3Dot Art Gallery will be celebrating color in the form of art in different styles by a variety artists. Come enjoy art that vibrates with positive energy and brings joy to the spirit!
