Royse Contemporary is hosting an artist reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 8, for the “Consideration of Color” exhibition — just in time with the Scottsdazzle Artwalk.
Royse Contemporary, 7077 E. Main Street, suite No. 6, is presenting “Consideration of Color,” a group exhibition examining color, reflecting upon the effects color creates within both the artist and viewer, according to Nicole Royse, curator at Royse Contemporary.
“Color is a brilliant tool allowing artists to further express themselves, as well as a way to connect with its viewers,” Ms. Royse said in a prepared statement. “As renowned artist Wassily Kandinsky once said, ‘Color is a power which directly influences the soul,’ awakening our senses on multiple levels.”

Ms. Royse offers a collection of work by artists working in an array of mediums including painting, drawing and mixed media.
This exhibition showcases the work of six noteworthy artists including:
- Cam DeCaussin,
- Fausto Fernandez,
- Casey Wakefield,
- Damian Jim,
- Becky Spradling, and
- Barbara Kemp Cowlin.
Ms. Royse says the collection offers a delight upon entry of the Old Town Scottsdale fine art gallery.
“We seek to highlight artists whose work offers a vibrancy, distinctive voice and vitality that will evoke and captivate a wide audience,” she said. “I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way — things I had no words for, Georgia O’Keeffe. Let us consider the artists inclusion or omission of color within their work, the emotional connection and response we may experience when we view colors.”
The exhibition is on display at Royse Contemporary through Jan. 8, 2023.
