Am I Blue?... or is it the color?
November 7 - November 25
Opening Reception: November 7 - 6-8pm
Blue, Azul, Cerulean Azure. Communicates honesty and loyalty, power and authority, stability and strength, patriotism and liberalism. Denotes masculinity and professionalism… refreshing, calm, blue skies and water, spirituality with Krishna or the Virgin Mary.
Yet blue also represents sad emotions, Depression . Many a song has cried out its feelings of disappointment or feeling blue. When your life line of oxygen is cut, you turn blue… Interesting that something can represent such extremes as wealth or emptyness. I choose the blue of the sky and the blue ocean.
