Design Studio Art Gallery presents “Colors of Summer: An Exploration of Warm Shades, Hues,and Tones” focusing on color identity defined by a warm palette.  “Colors of Summer: An Exploration of Warm Shades, Hues and Tones” will be on exhibit at Design Studio Art Gallery from July 15th – August 8th, 2010.

The exhibit looks into how warm colors define and illustrate mood, ambiance and environment. The curators have sought to examine how these colors, reminiscent of the summer, combine to create art that denotes familiarity in terms of place and environment.

As we collectively experience this warm season, the exhibit seeks to provide responses to how the summer’s energy can be interpreted through the warm palette used by the works on display.
