Art Center Blues

-A A +A

Reception: Art show opens Friday

The word “rhapsody” is so often associated with music that an art exhibit titled “Rhapsody in Blue” might inspire curiosity. One of the definitions for “rhapsody” is an ecstatic expression of feeling or enthusiasm, which makes it completely appropriate for art. There is, of course, a wave of blue through the Fuller Lodge Art Center gallery and the directions artists adventured with the theme should inspire an appreciation in viewers.
Melissa Alexander, a retired schoolteacher and longtime volunteer at the Art Center, finds the challenge of creating knit pieces to follow an exhibit theme an intriguing challenge. Her piece “Sailing in the Cyclades” includes four types of fiber knit into a sleeveless sweater that captures the essence of the Mediterranean.
Lene Bryson and Sue Ellen Hains, both members of a local collage group, collaborated on a painting titled, “Big Blue.” The large abstract appears as a field of blue with veins of navy and bright red, like an out-of-this-world marble slab. Photographer David Elton’s “Fence” has an abstract quality as well, focused on a couple of knot holes in a highly grained wood fence that has a blue cast.
