About the Exhibitions

Winter Blues

Who says having the blues are bad? Resident artists were challenged to use a limited “cool” color palette in “Winter Blues.” Featuring work with mostly purple, blue, green, black, or white colors, “Winter Blues” brings the chilly winter weather inside the gallery for the months of January and February. Get lost in the cosmos with pieces like Charmaine Jones’ “Space Nebula” or Keith Lewis’ “Galaxy Graphics.” See evocative portraits in Eric Atkinson’s “The Scheme” or Imani Turner’s “Boxer,” or simply enjoy the peace of nature in Paul Lewis’ “Glacier” or Sarah Swan’s “Moonlight Meditation.” Bring a warm sweater and check out “Winter Blues” today!
