About Color Wheel of Emotions:

Juror: Terry Waldron
Managing Curator: Carol R. Eaton

Cultures around the world universally associate colors with emotions. Anthropologists and businesses study the role colors play. Color Wheel of Emotions is filled with art that uses color to evoke a mood, a feeling or a sense of emotion.

About Mapping Memories: Michigan:

Juror: Carol Ann Waugh
Managing Curators: Chris Worland and Cheryl Dineen Ferrin

We live in a unique place on the planet. Michigan has 2,147 miles of shoreline around both the lower and upper peninsulas--more than the Atlantic Coast of the United States. And while tourism is a significant part of the Michigan lifestyle, manufacturing has played a tremendous role in the development of the state.
Our memories mark situations in time that stick with us for a special reason. So often these memories are based in a place. Where have your memories been created, why are these memories so significant? This exhibition is an opportunity for the artist to reflect on their experiences in our fair state and bring them to life in the form of a biographical map.
