October 12th is the first day to view the exhibition Experiments in Color: Selections from Josef Albers’s Portfolios.

Gathered in part from the Asheville Art Museum’s Permanent Collection, this exhibition presents a selection of prints by German-born artist and educator Josef Albers (1888 – 1976) from the portfolios Interaction of Color, 1963, and Formulation: Articulation, 1972.
