Sangria presents True Blue a large group invitational to celebrate a year of curatorial projects founded in friendship. Artists were invited to contribute work, bringing with them a loyal artist friend whose work they admire.Some artists have chosen to cleverly interpret the meaning of “True Blue” in their work, while others have taken creative liberty to interpret the blue hue as they wish within the confines of work that is 12″x 12″ and under. Blue may calm you, sedate you, quench a thirst, aid in intuition, represent cleanliness, purity, serenity, spiritual or melancholic states of mind. The color may represent a historical significance or an assortment of associations from blue ice to aloha blue. At Sangria, for group micro-exhibitions, we like to allow for serendipity in the curation to establish a fun play of patternicity. An influence no doubt from Gleason’s “Tel-Art-Phone” and Harvey’s & Cumming’s “Chain Letter.” Diverse artists come together for “True Blue” from art scenes across LA, even as far way as New York City, the South, pacific northwest, and Belgium.
