Primary colors might get a bad rap. The newest show at Barry Whistler Gallery was inspired by a piece at the National Galerie in Berlin and the viewing of Barnett Newman’s “Who’s Afraid of Red, Yellow, and Blue IV, 1969-70.” It makes a splendid argument for the continued necessity of these primary colors in all work. A conversation the Gallery hopes to continue with its new exhibition Blue, Yellow, Red, which features the work of Ellsworth Kelly, Allison V. Smith, Ann Stautberg, and John Wilcox. See the work in an opening reception from 6-8 p.m. Saturday at Barry Whistler Gallery (2909 B Canton St.) or during regular gallery hours through April 25.

Sat., March 7, 6-8 p.m.; Wednesdays-Saturdays, 12-5 p.m. Starts: March 7. Continues through April 25, 2015
