CALL FOR ART

BLUEISH – A pop up virtual exhibition featuring artwork inspired by the color blue. This exhibition examines the color’s global similarities, its impact on society, and unique meanings across cultures. While most colors conjure tangibles (a red rose, orange fruit, yellow lemon, or green grass), blue often brings to mind the sea and sky, and the dreamy space where the two meet. Blue transcends cultural boundaries and is considered a color of calm worldwide. It can soothe us the way sitting in the sand to watch gentle waves wash ashore soothes us. Blue is said to be the most popular color on the spectrum. This exhibition is part of a series of curated experiences with a mission to push artists in their practice with the challenge to create works in one color. See last color exhibit here.
