The Blues and Other Colors assembles photographs and paintings by nine artists in an attempt to visually express and interpret The Blues. A musical form and genre originating in African-American communities at the end of the 19th century, The Blues have permeated jazz, rock and roll as well as multiple other music genres. Yet, the word blue also connotes the primary color perceived from light of wavelength 440–490 nm and may represent happiness, optimism, or, conversely, sadness. The artists in this exhibition interpret the blues as a color, musical form, and emotional state. Work by Cedric Baker, Magruder Murray, Adjoa J. Burrowes, Gloria C. Kirk, Bruce McNeil, Hubert Jackson, J’Nell Jordon, Carolyn Goodridge, and Jarvis Grant will be presented. Curated by Tim Davis.
