Out of the Blue: Attleboro Arts Museum

Deadline: May 23, 2008 (RECEIVE)

Out of the Blue

Attleboro Arts Museum
Attleboro, MA
July 2 - July 25, 2008

The Attleboro Arts Museum invites all artists to work “Out of the Blue.” Artists may submit original work in all mediums and concepts. All work must incorporate the color blue(s) for this national, juried exhibition in the Museum’s Ottmar Gallery. Six cash prizes of $100 will be awarded.

The color of ocean and sky, blue is often perceived as a constant in our lives. It is frequently seen as trustworthy and dependable, while at the same time, some feel the overuse of blue can be cold, uncaring or melancholy. That said, this pliable color can take a different turn and become a dynamic expression of exhilaration when sparks of electric blues make their mark.

Out of the Blue pays tribute to the Attleboro Arts Museum 85th anniversary. The Museum's vivid blue identity and trademark – designed to represent energy, opportunity and commitment – serves as the impetus behind this national, juried exhibition. Out of the Blue replaces the Museum’s Small Works exhibition for this anniversary year.
