Rhythm in Blue
I'm a member of a small art group in Salem called, well, The Salem Art Group and we have been planning for a show that went up on Saturday at Venti's Cafe in downtown Salem, The Blue Show. The only requirement for the show was the word or color blue be incorporated in some way. As you will see from the photos, we each went in a very different direction, but somehow the show looks pretty cohesive.
For my piece, I took one of my mudded, but very unfinished pieces and transformed it from a mass of red . . . .
. . . to a series of horizontal lines of color.
Then reworked it and reworked it with lots of colors, drips, sprays, scratches, and scritches, creating my Rhythm in Blue.
Kathy's husband Leo did the precarious hanging of the show -- with lots of input and suggestions from lots of ladies!
We had a soft opening on Wednesday night. I am blessed to be surrounded by a wonderful group of women artists.
