Red, Yellow, Blue on Display at SCC-Anna Extension Office

Red, Yellow, Blue, an art exhibit by Leslie Stucker, is on display at the Shawnee Community College Anna Extension Center in Oak Hall on the grounds of the Chaote Mental Health Center until the end of September. The exhibit features a series of works in spray paint, acrylic, watercolor, and charcoal.

Stucker is the assistant director of the Arts Council of Southeast Missouri. She graduated from Southeast Missouri State University with a BA in studio art. She has exhibited her work at SEMO, A Touch of Grace, and Barnes and Noble -- all in Cape Girardeau.

"We are taught to identify colors with their correlating 'word'." said Stucker about the exhibit. "I chose to work with the basic three primary colors -- red, blue, and yellow. We recognize these colors and words and associate them with certain feelings like rage, love, hate, water, purity, etc. So, I wondered what emotions, if any, would be evoked in seeing the word paired up with another color."
