Have you ever wondered what color your aura might be? This mystical description of the way a person's energy affects the room they inhabit might seem silly, but we use color to categorize things all the time. Red light means stop. Green, go. White for the wedding dress; pink for breast cancer. Sometimes the use of color is subtle, other times it can be outlandish. And no one knows how to manipulate color like artists Matthew Plummer Fernandez and Anne Katrine Sensta. For their exhibition at Zhulong Gallery, the artists will “Sculpt color to the point of bewitchment.” There will be 3-d sculptures, works on paper, and video projections. See the work at an artist reception from 6-9 p.m. Thursday, where you can get your aura read through photography. Or swing through the gallery through March 7. Admission to the gallery is free.

Thu., Feb. 5, 6-9 p.m.; Tuesdays-Saturdays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Starts: Feb. 5. Continues through March 7, 2015
