This spring’s exhibition in the MFA’s Gund Gallery is not just about quilts. A half-dozen brightly colored works on paper will be featured alongside textiles with carefully balanced color schemes in the exhibition Quilts and Color: The Pilgrim-Roy Collection. Join the Print and Drawing Club as we explore a wealth of material relating to color theory—from rare nineteenth-century treatises to the most colorful examples of Pop and Op art from the 1960s and beyond, including Joseph Albers’s The Interaction of Color. Come see the prints, books and portfolios from the department of Prints, Drawings, and Photographs that couldn’t be fit into the show!

 

This is a private event for Print and Drawing Club members.
