Ray Wittenberg's "Pornography of Color" Opens at Argenta Gallery

Ray Wittenberg's "Pornography of Color" Opens at Argenta Gallery


"The Pornography of Color" is the name of the exhibition of paintings by Ray Wittenberg opening Friday at Argenta Gallery during Argenta Art Walk. The gallery will be open from 5-8 p.m.

“I like to make paintings I like to look at. This show with its funny title, "The Pornography of Color," is as much about how much color turns me on as it is about telling any stories or making any points. I could have just as easily called it the "Seduction Of Color." Pornography can be defined as the depiction of the erotic intended to cause sexual excitement. I think the definition fits this show.
