The College of Central Florida will open “It’s Color Pencil” exhibition in partnership with the Color Pencil Society of America on Monday, Feb. 22, in the Webber Gallery at the CF Ocala Campus, 3001 S.W. College Road. The exhibition will be judged by Patricia Tomlinson, curator of exhibitions at the Appleton Museum of Art, College of Central Florida.
“It’s Color Pencil” is a biennial judged show sponsored by CPSA DC113 to showcase fine artwork of all styles and subjects completed in colored pencil. Colored pencil art is gaining recognition in the arts community and by the public. Artists who work with this medium have joined to further its exposure by their membership in the CPSA. Today their work is valued more and more by galleries, museums and private collectors.
The participating artists will present a variety of two-dimensional, color pencil-based artworks. This is the Webber Gallery’s first partnership with the Color Pencil Society of America.
Tomlinson joined the Appleton in 2016 after having served as curatorial staff at the Denver Art Museum for eight years. She received degrees from the University of Colorado, Boulder; Colorado State University; and the University of Denver. In addition to numerous small-scale shows, Tomlinson curated “Fashion Fusion: Native Textiles in Spanish Colonial Art” and has published on a variety of topics.
The exhibit will continue through Thursday, March 25. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Thursday. The gallery is closed Friday through Sunday and college-observed holidays. Admission is free. Masks are required to enter the gallery.
