From Caravaggio to Monet to Ansel Adams, artists use their talents and tools to capture the detail and many subtleties of play between light and shadow. Where there’s light, there must be shadow. Whether an artist knows it or not, light and its contrast are essential to their craft in all mediums. Pieces that play with this dynamic are eligible for the 4th annual Light and Shadow exhibition. Works selected by the juror will be on display in MFA’s online gallery, Curve Gallery, from December 15, 2021 – January 31, 2022. Show Chairs: Richard Niewerth and Wil Scott.
