VALISE Gallery artists turn the rainy, late winter PNW blues into art with a blue-themed show. The group show takes a variety of approaches. Some works aim to lighten the mood with a humorous approach while others consider sadness and loss. Some of the artist embodied the calm and reflective nature of the color into their work; some viewed the theme as a purely formal directive, incorporating the color into the work.
A special part of BLUE is a tribute to the late Ina Whitlock, a former VALISE artist who recently passed away
