Foto Relevance is excited to announce our next show back in the gallery, Quarantine Blues, a group show originally developed as an online exclusive show for buying art on a budget and now expanded to fill the physical space of the gallery as we slowly adjust back to normalcy.Please note that the exhibition is available for in-person viewing (at 4411 Montrose Boulevard Suite C) by appointment only, Thursdays through Saturdays from 12-4 pm, or during another prescheduled time. Groups are limited to 5, and all staff and visitors are required to wear face masks. Please contact the gallery to schedule a time.The psychology of the color blue has been studied in depth, and it has been shown that blues evoke feelings of calmness and serenity and can even increase productivity. Blue is an omnipresent factor in our lives, filling the sky and the water with its seemingly infinite depth. We have brought the contemplative color indoors with selections from gallery artists Brenda Biondo, Deborah Bay, Lou Peralta, Karen Navarro, Claire Rosen, Robert Langham III, Mark Chen, Torrie Groening, Lou Vest, Margeaux Walter, Paul-André Larocque, Joana Cardozo, and Julia McLaurin. The varied blue hues of the sky are interpreted through the skyscapes of Biondo and Chen, while the complex associations of the color throughout art history and culture are explored by Langham, Rosen, and Groening. Peralta utilizes the ability of color to evoke emotion, and the optics of color and depth are pushed beyond the flat image in the manipulated works of Larocque, Navarro, and Cardozo. Allow this collection to alleviate some of your quarantine blues.
