No color has as diverse a range or interpretation as Blue. According to painter Raoul Dufy, “Blue is the only color which maintains its own character in all its tones… it will always stay blue.” It is represented by the clearest of oceans and the deepest of melancholy sadness. It is nature, music, movement, and joy. It is pain and suffering. This juried exhibition is an exploration of this extraordinary color and its seemingly limitless breadth of expression.
Juror Sarah Krepp has an MFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a BS from Skidmore College. Krepp taught in the SAIC Painting Program for seven years before becoming Professor and Chair of the Painting Program at the University of Illinois at Urbana/Champaign.
