Essence of Color logo design by Arlene Boehm.

Pow! Crackle! Pop! COLOR—where color is the subject—the main event. Color’s spectrum has an impact on the viewer’s emotions and psyche, arousing feelings and physical sensations. With its own viewpoint, attitude and personality, color can excite, agitate or soothe.

JUROR: Wendy Moss
Wendy Moss is a Collage/Mixed-Media artist whose work reflects vivid color and dynamic texture. Her spirited abstracts make use of everyday materials to create an ever-evolving dialogue based on color juxtaposition and placement. She attended the State University College at Potsdam, NY (Art Studio major, Psychology minor), and continued her education at Pratt Institute, achieving an MA in Art Therapy. After years working as an Art Therapist, she took classes at Parsons School of Design in Textile Design and then worked as a colorist in the field. Later, she advanced her studies and her all consuming passion for color at New York City’s 92nd Street Y, studying Collage/Mixed Media, Painting, and workshops that focused on Color Theory, Papermaking, Transfers, and Digital Tools for Collage. As a printmaker she continues to investigate color and texture in her Monoprints. Her work has been shown in NYC (Chelsea), Brooklyn (Williamsburg), and in Hudson, NY. She resides in NYC and Claverack in Columbia County, NY.

A show so big on concept it may not fit in the gallery...! “An·thro·po·cene” (anTHrəpəˌsēn/): Adj. Relating to or denoting the current geological age. 8.7 billion species are currently in existence. But only ONE has made a colossal impact upon Planet Earth unprecedented in rate and scale. That species is Anthropo: MAN. Human life on Earth has always resulted in change, but over the last 1000 years, our presence has become an epic agent of change, accelerating exponentially beyond anything we have previously understood. As a result of the profound magnitude of our human impact, scientific consensus is now calling for recognizing a completely new geological epoch. Human Impact: Living in the Anthropocene Age explores this phenomenon. What does this mean to you? Give us your take on what it means to be living in the Man-Made Age. Works can address any element of human impact and its meaning for the Planet and/or life on the Planet—in the past or present. What does this human impact/change look like? How you feel and think about Planet Earth? Is Earth’s purpose to support us and our man-made environment? Or have we lost our way on Earth? Is this a special age for species extinction and are we Earthlings on the list? There’s a bigger picture for us to see—climate change and social change, environmental shifts and attitudinal shifts and so many points of view. It’s all up for grabs. After all, the world is now literally in your hands.

Join us to view this important show at the CCCA Gallery, 209 Warren Street, Hudson from May 25 – July 6 with an opening reception Saturday, May 28th from 5-7pm. email us at or call 518-671-6213.

There will also be a reading by author and poet, Marcia Slatkin, on the evening of the opening reception. Ms. Slatkin will read from her work OP-ED: Earth, poetry about climate change and politics. Please view to learn more.

Submission Deadline Midnight, April 27, 2016.

Juror: Valerie Richmond. Since moving to upstate New York, Juror Valerie Richmond has been an active participant in the Art Councils of Columbia and Greene Counties. Her works, ranging from early “constructions” and ceramics in “The Half-Circle of Well-Being Series”, to her monoprints have been shown in group shows in both counties. Her work has also been exhibited in several Outsider Art shows in New York City. Most recently, prints from her 2015 series “Buffalo Monoprints: Escape Across the Hudson” appeared at Fur. Fin. Feathers. at Spencertown Academy Arts Center, NY. This series was created to commemorate the true story of a small buffalo herd that crossed the Hudson River just north of the City of Hudson, in April of 2015, on their way West. Each print illustrates a part of the story of true events, as told to her by Wild Fox Heart and Buffalo Dancer. Richmond writes, “Through my art, I fulfill ancient aspirations and dreams. I try to express what I see in the world and to learn a connective language. This education helps me belong in this world, and celebrating the Creative Process and its mysteries helps me live in this life”.
