Featuring: Jean Burdick
Winter is a time full of festivities, as a rich assortment of blue hues illuminate the season. Visual impressions of ice and snow in cold pastel blues, long casted shadows of warm violet blue from a winter sunset, or a blanketed sky of midnight blue on a starlit night, forever reminisce in our visual memory. But, as the Updike poem suggests, winter can also be, for some people, a barren, unending stretch of time to endure. For them, rather than a beautiful color, blue is tied up in such dark feelings as loneliness, anxiety and depression. For this juried exhibition, we invite artists to investigate the blues of winter in all of its atmospheric vibrancy, as well as the mysterious domain of its overcast shadow.
