The Shadow Goes Through A Kaleidoscope

This past week, The Shadow attended yet another fine artist reception held by ARTworkSF in San Francisco. Not only did The Shadow view great art, The Shadow was also the recipient of a gift from artist Suzun Hughes. More on that in a moment.

ARTworkSF's newest exhibit is entitled "Conversations in Color: Kaleidoscope -- Using Colors Without Constraints". For those of you who are regular readers of this blog -- you may remember that ARTworkSF held two other "Conversations" exhibits: "Conversations in Color: Monochrome" and "Conversations in Color: Contraposed Harmonies". This exhibit is the third and final installment of this series.

Fire by artist Celestte

In the opinion of The Shadow, this was definitely the best of the three exhibits of this series. Colors were very vibrant and everywhere. In some cases, The Shadow saw many of the artists simply outdo themselves.

As for The Shadow's gift from artist Suzun Hughes: the t-shirt that The Shadow is wearing is one-of-a-kind. Suzun is looking into having more made in a way that is not cost-prohibitive for buyers. If you absolutely have to have the t-shirt before that time, get in touch with The Shadow and we will convey that wish to Suzun, but be prepared to pay for it. The design on the shirt is the painting below.
