DescriptionArtists, art fans, and the general public are invited to the upcoming pastel exhibit, The Color of Light, at the Sangre de Cristo Arts and Conference Center in Pueblo CO. The exhibition features original pastel paintings from Pikes Peak Pastel Society members and pastel artists nationally. All exhibited artwork will be available for purchase.

“In nature, light creates the color. In a picture, color creates the light,” said Hans Hofmann, a German-born American painter, renowned as an artist and teacher in a career that spanned two generations and two continents. He is considered to have both preceded and influenced Abstract Expressionism.
Artists for generations have attempted to “capture the light” in their paintings, both representational and abstract. The selection of colors they choose, how they interact and play off one another, their value and intensity, all combine to increase or decrease the perception of light.

Hofmann, whose medium of expression was color, said: “The whole world, as we experience it visually, comes to us through the mystic realm of color.” Scientifically, all of the colors we see are a byproduct of spectrum light, as it is reflected off or absorbed into an object. The medium of expression in this exhibition comes in the form of soft pastels, a simple mixture of pure color pigments, water and binder. Under a microscope, pastel particles look like colorful, multi-faceted gems. Pastel paintings are vibrant, with strong darks and brilliant color—a perfect medium for "The Color of Light".
