QAC Centre for the Arts Announces “LOVE IS RED” Winter Show Opening:
January 30, 2015

Queen Anne's County Centre for the Arts will open “LOVE is RED”, a gallery exhibition celebrating love and the color red, with a public reception Friday, January 30th, at 5 pm. A variety of art including photography, painting, sculpture, mixed media and more will be included in this exciting show open to all artists. With the snuggle-up days of winter here and Valentine’s Day just around the corner, it seems appropriate that artists are expressing the many manifestations of love in art. Emphasis for this show is on the color red and the subject of love in many forms. Warm red colors, hearts, and flowers will be representative of the many possible whimsical interpretations of the theme. We have carried the theme of the “LOVE IS RED” show into our Paint Brush Party on January 23rd – instructor Sarah Lyle has created an “Artsy Heart” for attendees to create.

These exhibits offer artists and audience members an excellent opportunity to participate in a show that reflects the diversity of regional artwork. This show will run from January 30th to February 26th. All work will be available for sale and a portion of the proceeds will benefit Queen Anne's County Arts Council’s programming. The Centre is located at 206 S. Commerce St. in Centreville, MD. Hours are Tuesday through Friday from 10 am to 4 pm and Saturday by appointment.
