DESCRIPTION:

One Color: Infinite Possibilities.

How expressive can you be utilizing a single base hue but employing as many of its shades, tones and tints as you require? Monochromatic artworks can be based on any single color, not just black & white. For example, in the Blue spectrum we have Azure, Cobalt, Cerulean, Ultramarine, etc. Reds might include Garnet, Crimson, Rose…the possibilities for explorations within each hue are endless.

For inspiration, consider a few well known artists who explored the possibilities of working in monochrome: Agnes Martin, Mark Rothko and Gerhard Richter.  

Contemporary, expressionistic, abstract, exploratory, and/or experimental entries encouraged.
O’Hanlon Center for the Arts emphasizes the creative process and the continued pursuit of meaning and authenticity through observation, exploration, and experimentation.
