Call to Artists – MCA Members Art Exhibit for March 2021
Title of Exhibit: “Monochromatic March”
Who’s Eligible: MCA Artist Members
Description of Exhibit: The term monochrome comes from the Ancient Greek: monochromos, meaning ‘having one color’. A monochromatic artwork is created using only one color or hue. It can use different shades / tones / tints of one color but, by definition, should contain only ONE base color. Tints are achieved by adding white. Shades and tones are achieved by adding black. For more than a hundred years, artists have used a single color as a vehicle for exploring both the potential and limitations of painting, using this reductive formula to experiment with formal concerns of composition and tonality, or to advance theories related to nature, the sublime and spiritual concerns. Rendered with geometric precision or with the nuance of expressive brushstrokes, the monochrome is an enduring idiom of avant-garde modernism.
MCA invites current and new Artist members to submit artwork(s) done in ONE color of choice. Only entries which adhere to a monochromatic color scheme will be accepted. There are no restrictions on content, style, medium or context.
