 Upcoming Summer Online Art Show 'Juxtaposition'

 July 11, 2021

Submissions are open!

Postcard

 

Simply stated, juxtaposition means placing two or more things side-by-side, often with the intention of comparing or contrasting the elements. It is commonly used in the visual arts to emphasize a concept, form unique compositions, and add intrigue to paintings, drawings, sculptures, or any other type of artwork. Colors that are opposite from one another(complementary) on the wheel like; blue and yellow, red and green, or orange and purple, for example, will juxtapose. That is, they will stand out from one another; some in a pleasing way, some in a conflicting way.
