Press release

The Arts Council of Greater New Haven presents Red Alert, the organization’s seventh annual members show, in the Sumner McKnight Crosby Jr. Gallery, 70 Audubon St., 2nd floor, New Haven. This exhibition of works in a variety of media will be on display from Fri., July 16 through Fri., Sept. 24, 2010. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m.—5 p.m. The gallery will close at 3 p.m. on Fridays during July and August. An artists’ reception is scheduled for Thurs., July 15, from 5—7 p.m.

In a departure from previous members shows, the Arts Council has introduced a theme—Red Alert—that can be interpreted by participating member artists on multiple levels.

The color red can evoke power, danger, luck, love, and countless other associations. “Red Alert” can represent a warning or signal and can be interpreted literally or metaphorically. (Image is "What's Goin On" by Gerald Saladyga.)
