Art Exhibit Focuses on Bold Colors

OCTOBER 17, 2005 -- Something new is in the air and something new is in the water at the Cameron Art Museum in Wilmington.

The museum is welcoming two new exhibits and the most eye-catching comes by way of New York's Rockefeller Center.

Famed artist Dorothy Gillespie originally designed these pieces to hang in the skyscraper that is the home to NBC television.

The exhibit "Color, Light and Motion" features nearly 200 aluminum sculptures all designed with bold colors. They hang in the museum's courtyard and float in the pond at the museum's entrance.

Gillespie says the bold colors were popularized by color television.

You can see Gillespie's exhibit, along with Maude Gatewood's "From Memory," beginning on Friday.
