The National Arts Club (NAC) presents The Touch of Red, an exhibition by Chellis Baird.
In this exhibition, Baird, a 2022-23 National Arts Club Artist Fellow, explores the complex significance of the color red, expanding upon her signature techniques of sculpture, painting and textiles within the spectrum of the hue. Much like the versatility of Baird’s work, the color conjures a wide range of symbols, feelings and history, including the contrasting emotions of love and pain, as well as symbols such as good luck, war and seduction. The artist developed the red paint with local suppliers in New York and Georgia to create her chosen shades, and also developed her first metal and rosin works titled Serpentine and Flirt with the assistance of a foundry in Long Island City.
