The color induces feelings such as love, warmth, and passion, as well as energy, war and power and the works on exhibition reflect those feelings.The exhibition includes various styles and mediums such as acrylic, collage, encaustic, mixed media, oil, pastel, photography and sculpture. Over fifty pieces of art representing over forty artists from the Hudson Valley and New York Metropolitan area are included in this exhibition. The works vary in style, but the one common thread is that the viewers’ eye is immediately drawn to the red element in each piece.

Participating artists include Joan Barker, Loel Barr, Diane Christi, Mary Colby, Shelley Davis, Nancy deFlon, Ruth Edwy, Debra Friedkin, Patti Gibbons, Cali Gorevic, David Hect, Jeffrey Helmuth, Kay Kenny, Barbara Tepper Levy, Colleen Lineberry, Susan Lisbin, Linda Lynton, Dorothea Marcus, Charlann Meluso, Wilma Miller, Erica Minglis, Ann Morris, Grey Ivor Morris, Richard Morris, Susan Murphy, Franc Palaia, Tracy Phillips, Amy Puccio, Elaine Ralston, Tad Richards, Ann Marie Roselli-Kissack, Marilyn Rowley, Ana C.
