Everything Blue - A Gallery Opening

A SPECIAL GALLERY OPENING in the color BLUE... The Studio, 17&19 W. Mechanic Street, New Hope, PA. Visit the website:

We humans are drawn to blue. Like no other color, we are drawn to blue. The color of the ocean, the color of the sky. Few other things in this world are naturally blue, but water and air are large and vast in our lives. On October 7, a small group of regional artists will be featured in the Everything Blue show at The Studio on Mechanic St. in New Hope, PA. I'm really looking forward to experiencing a gallery full of BLUE! Cobalt and ultramarine have long been my go to colors. Please join me.... What do you love about blue?
