Prism Pop Up Gallery benefits the Hart Gallery
Many moons ago, when I was in elementary school, my mother taught me about the color spectrum by holding a glass prism up to our kitchen window to let the sunlight shine through, pointing out the rainbow reflected on the opposite wall.
That day I learned about the way light passes through particles to create what our eyes perceive as colors—red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet, respectively.
Visitors of the Prism Pop Up Gallery may not get the same home school experience I was granted, but they will have the opportunity to walk through the color spectrum as some of Chattanooga’s best artists present their work at the Granfalloon.
Prism Pop Up gallery is a one-day event this coming Tuesday that is dedicated to displaying and celebrating the varieties of color in art. The exhibit is set up to create an immersive experience for visitors, categorizing artwork based on piece’s prominent colors and organizing them to mirror the color spectrum.
Walking through the exhibit’s expansive collection will evoke the same experience as taking a stroll through a rainbow.
The gallery features nothing but local artists, including Ron Johnson, representing green; Mary Hamby, representing yellow; Julian Walther, representing blue; and Antony Squizzato, representing red. At 7 and 8 p.m., live painting will be done by Susan Creswell and Tony Mraz.
In addition, ten percent of ticket sales will be donated to the Hart Gallery, and all sales proceeds will go straight to the artists. The event begins at 6 p.m. and tickets are $5.
