About the Exhibition: For more than a decade, the Cambridge Art Association has hosted a fall exhibit, open to artists from across the Northeastern United States, centered around a single color. Both the success of the exhibit series, and the challenge to participating artists, lies in channeling the varied meanings of a color like BLUE. BLUE is more than a color. Past jurors for the BLUE  Biennial include: Amy Sadao (Director, ICA Philadelphia); Howard Yezerski (Miller Yezerski Gallery); Carl Belz (Rose Art Museum); Jane Farver (MIT List Visual Arts Center); Nick Capasso (Fitchburg Art Museum).



Blue Artist Talk: December 15th, 12-2pm presented at the Kathryn Schultz Gallery
