‘Meditation in Color’ by Debbie Welsh

Color can energize us or calm us down. That’s why red is not a recommended hue for a baby’s room and why there used to be a paint called Hospital Green. Debbie Welsh is an artist who is color-centric. “The color appears to me as magical!” she states in exclamation points. “It comes out as a glow! Color has energy!” But she also likes its calming effects, found on meditative walks. “The subjects that I paint remain fluid and I’m apt to change them frequently while I’m building a combination of layered images,” Welsh explains. Ten percent of her sales during the course of the exhibition will benefit Project 321 Read, a service of Communities In Schools of Clark County.
