In 1980, Faber Birren, world renowned color consultant, author of 27 books on color, endowed the Faber Birren Color Award of $1000 for original and creative expression of color. The Faber Birren Color Award Show has grown from a regional exhibit to one of national scope, encouraging artists in all media. This competition is the only juried artistic event devoted exclusively to the use of color. This year the Stamford Art Association celebrates its 38th year of the Faber Birren National Color Award Show. Currently the awards total $2500. Deadline for online submission is July 22 via http://www.stamfordartassociation.org/FaberBirren.html
Juror: Lindsay Ganter, administrator in the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Leonard A. Lauder Research Center for Modern Art.
