The Sweet Briar Collection: Interaction of Color by Josef Albers

The Josef Albers exhibition at the Pannell Art Gallery showcases a collection of original silkscreen prints produced for his book “Interaction of Color,” which is in the college’s permanent collection.

The book is a manifestation of Albers’ passion for exploring how colors work scientifically, subjectively and subconsciously. The exhibition is designed to feel like you are walking through the book as the prints draw you in with bold colors and intriguing patterns.

Albers writes, “In visual perception, a color is almost never seen as it really is—as it physically is. This fact makes color the most relative medium in art.”
