“Seeing Red” is an art show celebrating the color red and packed with all the emotional force it can deliver.

It’s a particularly well-timed show as today is National Wear Red Day.

The American Heart Association is encouraging everyone to wear red today to promote awareness of the dangers of heart disease in women.

Red is associated with intense human emotions. From anger, rage, and fear, to passion, desire and love, red defines some of our more instinctual human drives and feelings.

punctuation, the artists at In Your Eye Gallery use red as a catalyst, creating an exhibit celebrating the sheer intense power of the color.

The red-infused artwork was created in various media, including painting, fiber art,

photography, mixed media, glass, and jewelry.

When grouped together, the pieces form a visually intense and intriguing exhibit.

The 12 artists represented in the gallery are Andrea Kissinger, Carl Shortt, Jr., Chad Woolbright, Dana Powell, Diana J Smith, Gayle L. Curry, Janice Mathews-Gordon, Michelle Phillip Junkin, Natalie Friedman, Nicki Albright, Sue Hale, and Yun Hendricks.

“Seeing Red” is on view through Sunday, Feb. 24.
