The Stamford Art Association has presented the Faber Birren Color Award Exhibit at its Townhouse Gallery, 39 Franklin Street, Stamford, CT since 1980. The exhibit honors Faber Birren, world-renowned color theorist and former Stamford, CT resident. He wrote extensively on color and published 40 books and over 250 articles on the subject. The Nave and the Walt Disney Company used his color theory work. This competition is the only artistic event devoted exclusively to the use of color. The jurors for this exhibit are usually chosen from major NYC museums and organizations such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, MOMA, and Sotheby's.
Faber Birren, one of the most prominent scholars in the field of the theory of color, spent most of his career studying the influence of color on art, the workplace, and human psychology. His work, which was donated to Yale University’s Art and Architecture Library, is now referred to as Birren color theory.
In 1934 he established his own company and worked as an industrial color consultant, advising clients on the psychological effects of color on safety, employee morale, productivity, and sales. His recommendations included changing wall and interior colors to reduce visual fatigue and using bright colors on machinery to reduce accidents. DuPont, Monsanto, and General Electric were among his clients as well as the military.
The Faber Birren Color Award Exhibit pulls in artists internationally and is held for 6 weeks annually. 40 artists are selected by the juror and their work is displayed at the Townhouse Gallery and online. Cash awards are funded by his family, family, and friends to honor Diane Etienne Faxon, who helped create the exhibit.
Linder is exhibiting one of his new series of paintings for the 42nd Faber Birren National Color Show. With the series title being Hues of Freedom, at first, you might think of American flags waving, and the colors red, white, and blue. But, this series is different, it goes back to the roots of what makes this country free, the people that demand freedom. The people that fight for freedom so that the next generation can benefit from their hard work and sacrifices.
Starting with non-traditional colors for his paintings Linder worked on the essence of what each of these moments in time was.
Allan Linder is a prolific, award-winning artist with more than thirty years of experience producing a wide range of artwork using multiple mediums and subject matter. His painting titled “Getting There” received critical acclaim when a news story about the accompanying NFT went viral. Linder has nine exhibitions this year including the CICA Museum in South Korea. He has launched many NFT crypto art collections on Mint Gold Dust, Known Origin, and Foundation. His 2007 art book titled "20th Century and Beyond" was re-launched this year.
Allan Linder (1966, California, United States) Began exhibiting his work at the Installations one art gallery in Los Angeles during the 80s. After receiving success with a series of paintings titled “Freedom”, an expose on the fall of the Berlin Wall, and an article in the LA Times, Linder continued to pursue his art career in New York City, when he moved there in 2000.
While living in NYC, Linder exhibited at the Artists’ Gallery in Chelsea which opened many doors to international collectors. He has enjoyed exhibiting work alongside the American abstract expressionist painter Robert Goodnough and many others. He has exhibited internationally in Brazil, Germany, France, Spain, and Italy. His work is held in private collections throughout the U.S. and internationally. His work is in permanent collections of the Elmira Museum of Art, NY, and The Rochester Contemporary Art Center, NY.
After receiving several awards for his paintings during juried group exhibitions, Linder was interviewed by JAV art and Al-Tiba9 International Art Magazines. His work will be exhibited in many group shows including work at the Swiss Art Fair in Zürich and the CICA Art Museum in Seoul, South Korea later this year.
Allan Linder fabricates paintings, drawings, digital artwork, mixed media artworks, and sculptures, using a variety of materials and substrates. His recent work Cityscapes a collection of hand-painted artworks scanned at high resolution and digitally painted. The resulting artwork is a merger of traditional art with digital paint, printed as a giclée on canvas. Then he adds additional acrylic layers again, giving depth and color to the original image. This systematic process of enhanced prints was created by the artist over many years.
