Call to Artists Art Fluent invites artists to submit artwork to their online exhibit, Seeing RED. Over $1,200 in cash prizes. All accepted pieces will be displayed in their online gallery Behold the power of red. After black and white, red is the first color that humans perceive. It’s the color babies see before any other and the first that those suffering from a brain injury start seeing again. One of the boldest colors in the spectrum, red stands out in artwork and grabs our attention more than any other color can. Red, the color of our blood, vitality, and life force, it vastly communicates love, lust, heat, anger, majesty, passion, and power. And all at the same time warning us of danger, fear, rage, and aggression. All those red flags. Red has so much to say! Show them Seeing RED from your perspective. Learn more.
