Reception for group exhibition: 'Oversaturated'

Friday, Feb. 24, 2017

Alexander Hall Gallery

Savannah, GA

668 Indian St.

Join a reception celebrating "Oversaturated," a group exhibition featuring paintings, photographs and sculptures by SCAD alumni, faculty and students on view Tuesday, Jan. 24, through Sunday, Feb. 26. The exhibition brings together bold, vibrant works and pays homage to Carlos Cruz-Diez — the deFINE ART 2017 honoree — and his long career of examining color as an autonomous reality.

Artists included in the exhibition use color in three distinct ways: formal, political and emotive. Formal works employ color as an essential compositional device, political artwork uses color to address social issues, and emotive color is exploited as a means of eliciting poignant responses in viewers.

"Oversaturated" is curated by Ben Tollefson, assistant curator of SCAD exhibitions.

Gallery hours:  Monday–Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The reception is free and open to the public. The exhibition is free with valid SCAD Card and open to the public by appointment. For more information, contact Hillary Eustis at heustis@scad.edu.

This exhibition is part of deFINE ART 2017, held Feb. 21–24 at SCAD locations in Savannah and Atlanta, Georgia, and Hong Kong. DeFINE ART is an annual program of exhibitions, lectures, performances and public events that highlights emerging and established artists and visionaries.
