Color Field Sculpture - Shelley Parriott - Javits Center, NYC

The Javits Center is not seen specifically as an art venue.  But the lure of the city drew us in and we participated in the Contemporary Art Fair.  

Entering the Javits Center and installing colorful sheer components:

Children are always fully engaged…drawn in by welcoming colors.


New York City always surprises!  Participants often view Color Field Sculpture as meditative, subtle and "ethereal' … 
a place for calm introspection as illusory colors become transparent in changing light … But at The Javits Center in New York City edgy passersby were in a playful mood…..

An artist stopped in his tracks!

Andy Golub's colorful painted people, having been on the David Letterman in August, suddenly appeared at The Javits … out of the ordinary 
… how could they resist chromatic shapes?

Photographer Marisa Arvonio focused in on the painterly quality and patterns created by overlapping transparencies.

We met fine artists, artisans, and international viewers.
