San Francisco, California (WiredPRNews.com) — The Attleboro Arts Museum has requested artists from all over US to work for ‘Out of the Blue’. Original art from all concepts and mediums which incorporate the color blue will be displayed during the national juried exhibition to be held in the Ottmar Gallery of the museum. The exhibition also marks the 85th anniversary of the establishment.
The vivid trademark and blue identity of the museum has been designed to represent opportunity, commitment and energy which serve as the force behind this show. Among those who won cash awards is Hooshang Khorasani from Ruston, Los Angeles, who has been a Premiere Portfolio Artist (PPA) since 2004 at absolutearts.com.
Blue is the color of sky and ocean and is often seen as a constant in human life. It is trustworthy and at times, some may feel it as cold, melancholy and uncaring. The Executive Director of the museum, Mim Brooks Fawcett, said that around 500 artists from 32 different states have submitted more than 800 entries. The theme of the exhibition has excited and intrigued many artists who produce lush blue colors with amazingly diverse messages. He said it is wonderful to receive such a strong response and an outpour of exceptional quality work.
Other than this exhibition, two other museums are going to feature Khorasani’s art this summer. Khorasani’s new series of abstract art ‘Luminescence’ was shown at Rawls Museum Arts, Courtland, Va. from June 6th to July 11th and won the 3rd place. His two-painting set ‘Jewels’ were displayed at the Attleboro Arts Museums under the title ‘Out of the Blue’. His painting named ‘Equine Elegance’ was shown at Louisiana State Museum, Baton Rouge from May 10th to June 5th.
The exhibition was a preview to the annual Louisiana Public Broadcasting Art and Travel Auction that was held on June 8th.
