In a world filled with color -- mostly blues, greens and white -- artwork created simply using black, white and gray is an anomaly.

Last year, Walton County Cultural Arts Association's visual arts committee members voted to host a black, white and gray exhibit this year, which artist and committee-member Donnelle Clark found exciting.

"I don't usually paint with those colors," she said. "It's hard to do, so I was excited about it."

The exhibit's opening reception was June 14 and 31 pieces of artwork created by 31 members of the CCA debuted.

The pieces cover a wide range of subjects including dogs, buildings, portraits, water and abstracts, all drawing admiration from those who attended.

Some artists who contributed to the exhibit are former Artists of the Year, including the current one -- Marisol Gullo.

"Black, White, and Gray" is a juried special exhibit that will be up until July 29 at The Foster Gallery at Grand Boulevard. All pieces are for sale.

Foster Gallery is an artist co-operative led by the Cultural Arts Alliance that features at least a dozen member artists on a seasonally rotating basis, along with special exhibits.
