Marcia B. Hall’s new book explores the “Power of Color”

Author: Zachary Vickers

After five years of research, Marcia B. Hall’s latest exploration of color in European painting is here. Yale University Press has published The Power of Color: Five Centuries of European Painting, a sequel of sorts to her 1992 book, Color and Meaning, which explored color in the Renaissance. This time, Hall’s research carries the reader on a journey that reaches into the 20th century. “The Power of Color extends to World War I,” Hall said. I wanted to capture the larger picture of how techniques and making developed in the early modern period, which has never been studied.” The Power of Color covers a 500-year period of innovation and discovery in the world of art that spurred new visual effects and strategies.  Read More

On May 23, 2019, in the Tyler School of Art and Architecture’s Green Hallway Gallery, Philadelphia Sculptors hosted the opening of its 20th annual 5 into 1 exhibition (on view through June 23, 2019). The show features the work of some of the best up-and-coming artists who have graduated from five local institutions: the Moore College of Art & Design, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, the University of the Arts, the University of Pennsylvania and Tyler.

Curators selected artists who promote sculptural thinking and movement, spanning many disciplines and areas of study.  Read More
