Create a colour wheel and be part of new exhibition

Where: The Wilson Art Gallery and Museum, Cheltenham

When: Saturday, March 21, to Sunday, June 7

Colour-ways: Lights Works by Liz West brings colour to The Wilson Art Gallery and Museum in a new and exciting way.

The exhibition features three key light installations, Our Spectral Vision, Tempo and Shifting Luminosity which will be on display in the second floor gallery from Saturday, March 21, to Sunday, June 7.

An integral part of the exhibition is the Our Colour Wheel project, Liz West's ongoing research project. Liz is inviting all colour enthusiasts to get involved and create their own interpretation of a traditional colour wheel.

She has a specific interest in how individuals experience colour in their own way. The submissions will be used by her to inform her research, illustrate how colour is perceived, interpreted and experienced by the viewer. A selection of the paintings will feature in the exhibition.

To take part, entries need to be on good quality, white paper and submitted to The Wilson. There are no restrictions or limitations on what can be produced. Entrants are encouraged to produce a colour wheel that illustrates how they perceive colour.

Liz said: "There is a definite collation between the participants and their painted wheels. The participants' interpretations of the wheel reflect their personalities, styles, agendas, and aesthetics.

"Physically demonstrating individuals' perception of colour is the main reason that I wanted to make this body of works, as it taps into people's colour awareness and perception. It is an ongoing series of work which l will keep making throughout my life and career as an artist. I'd like to gather hundreds or even thousands of paintings over time."

Tickets for the exhibition are £5 and £3 for concessions and will be on sale shortly. Full information on how to take part in Our Colour Wheel is available from the Cheltenham Museum website.
