Feeling the winter blues? Cheer up at Columbia Art Gallery with its February exhibit, “The Blues.”
Artists will examine everything blue: color, music, emotion and more.
The exhibit runs Feb. 1-24. Entry to the gallery is always free.
The opening reception on First Friday, Feb. 1, from 6-8 p.m., will feature an inspirational visual feast of blues by 35 gallery artists, with acoustic music by local blues musicians Tess and Patrik Barr.
“February is always a ‘blue’ month for us Northwesterners,” says show curator Rachel Harvey. “We might as well revel in it and have some fun!”
Also featured in the gallery is jewelry by Shawn Daughton and paintings by Michelle Yamamoto.
