Feb. 20-Apr. 13: RED
Red is a symbolic color with a multitude of meanings. It's found throughout nature and in art, and depending on whom you ask, the hue can indicate happiness, danger, or passion. A current exhibition at The Old Print Gallery is showcasing art that includes the color and demonstrates its various connotations. RED features work by modern and early 20th century printmakers, and will be on display through April 13.
