Artist of the Month

Dan Modzelewski

FIRST FRIDAY, JULY 9, 2021

“I am so looking forward to my First Friday Show. It has truly been an honor to be represented by such a wonderful gallery as 510 for the past 20 years. It has been my privilege to be associated with so many talented, creative, and generous people; inspirational artists who are both mentors and friends.”

“I am taking a break from exhibiting my work but will continue to support this important and welcoming place. My retrospective collection of drawings will focus on many genres from baseball to birds and everything in between.”

“I hope to see you all on the 9th! It will be fun!”

What about the mat color?

The idea of using a mat with your piece of art is to focus attention to the artwork as well as separate it from the glass. When you choose the color of the mat it is best to use moderation. You want the artwork to take center stage. You don’t want your eye to go out to the mat. A white value that isn’t too bright looks good with almost anything. There are many whites to choose from. Other soft colors pulled from the colors found in the artwork can be chosen as well.If the art is almost entirely white you can consider mounting with a gray or black mat for some drama.

If you want a burst of color, keep it to the second mat underneath and show only 1/8 inch so attention isn’t drawn away from the artwork but just enhances. This accent mat isn’t necessary but does add a decorative touch.

Another decorator’s touch is to use a triple mat all in a cream or offwhite.
