Red, an exhibition of contemporary visual arts by a group of twenty women artists, will be inaugurated at the J.D. A. Perera Gallery, University of Visual and Performing Arts, on August 9 at 5 p.m. Red has been chosen thematically by the artists because they feel it is a colour which symbolic of a gamut of human feelings and activities such as love, revolution, strength, anger and terror. They also feel that cultural and commercial forces have associated women with the colour red all over the world.
