In Position: Figural Works from the Rall Gallery Permanent Art Collection

In Position is a show that represents the human body experiencing personal realities through the frozen imagery of fragmented action or in between moments of movement.

Formalistically, value is the graduation of light to dark over a form. Described through its ability to create transitional illusions (exaggerated or subtle), the value-based technique requires intentionality.

Gallery Collection Exhibition

Primary is a curated selection of artwork from Doane University’s art collection. With the primary colors being the focus, these paintings, drawings and prints are anything but basic.

An understanding of basic color theory is not exclusive to the artist and/or designer. We all make decisions based on color, one way or another, everyday. Although the study of color can be quite complex, everyone can benefit from an understanding of basic color essentials.
