Featuring works by

John Baldessari, Mel Bochner, Frank Egloff, Robert Mangold, Kay Rosen, Kate Shepherd, and Suara Welitoff

In the English language, blue is the name of a color and also an emotional state.  When used in visual art, blue has traditionally effected a great cross-sensory metaphor.  However, many shades of blue exist and many blue moods exist.  Each is a dynamic, multi-faceted ‘situation’ and so while the exhibition, “Blues” started with the color, it came to formation by looking this reality and accepting division as a key component.  While the works range from text (Kay Rosen and Mel Bochner) through video (Suara Welitoff) to painting (Frank Egloff and Kate Shepherd), each artist has created a work that holds together, yet is divided.  Both in figurative (John Baldessari) and abstract (Robert Mangold) ways, artists can pair, take apart and subsititute in ways that provide new opportunities to examine the formal, conceptual, emotional and social aspects of their works.
