Am I Blue - or is it the color?
On view November 7th - 25th
Artist Reception: Friday, November 9th from 5-8pm
A solo exhibition of work by DVAA member Edna Santiago
In the words of Edna Santiago: “Blue, Azul, Cerulean, Azure. This color 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. Alternatively, blue also represents sad emotions like 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 emptiness. I choose the blue of the sky and the blue ocean."

Through December 15th
East Alcove Gallery, International House
3701 Chestnut St.
Open Hours: 9am–5pm
Join us at 6pm immediately prior to the reception Sept 4th for Deep Dive: Ingmar Bergman. More information can be found here.
Over the next few months, International House will be featuring the work of two master storytellers, Swedish filmmaker Ingmar Bergman and Czech animator Jiri Trnka. As with so many master artists, these two breathe life into the characters they create—and the worlds they inhabit. The artistic visions of Bergman and Trnka ultimately explore the multitude of triumphs and despairs that characterize the human condition. However universal the experiences of human nature can be, truly talented artists are marked by their ability to impart new perspectives onto their audiences.
This open call exhibition, juried by Bryant Girsch, features artwork that absorbs, captivates, transfixes, and ultimately delivers the viewer to newly imagined destinations. Whether surreal or abstract, documentation or lyrical, visual artwork often reveals much about the artist.
