A Summer Group Exhibition
July 20 – August 24, 2013
Opening Reception: Saturday, July 20, 2013 /6-9 pm

Inspired by recent travels to Paris, Katherine Cone Gallery is pleased to present
a summer group exhibition, titled Rouge. The exhibition consists of original
works of art that will include the color red by renowned artists Edith Baumann,
Sean Cheetham, John Eden, EL MAC, Shepard Fairey, John Van
Hamersveld, Brad Howe, Eric Pedersen, DeWain Valentine, and Suzan

Rouge, The French word for “red”, is a color commonly associated with passion,
fire, beauty, danger, sacrifice, anger, and in some places happiness. It can be
used as an expression, as in “seeing red” meaning to be enraged. Likewise, it
can be a symbol of love and entertainment, such as the Moulin Rouge, a Paris
cabaret known for it’s seductive dancing and famously marked by the red
windmill on its roof.
Whether it means anger to one or love to another or is envied simply for the
beauty of the pigment itself, the color red carries a powerful energy with it. Each
of these ten artists has defined in their own context what the color red signifies to
them. Please join us for a reception for the artists Saturday, July 20th, from 6-9
p.m. The Rouge exhibition opens July 20th and will run until August 24th, 2013.
