"Open Planet," artist Ferne Jacobs says,"came from experiencing the piece as I was making it, in my mind, it was the earth. The colors -- green, brown, bluish grey — are the elements on our planet. Open is because the work has no bottom or top. So can we see the earth as a globe/ball, open/unending.

This April 28th to May 6, 2018 browngrotta arts will exhibit "Blue/Green: color/code/context," a multi-media group art exhibition in Wilton, Connecticut

Blue and green, as colors they are elemental…sky, sea, blades of grass, leaves of trees, infinite in hue, tone, intensity and variation...indigo, azure, cerulean, celadon. As metaphor, they serve as code, signaling a mood, a musical genre, naiveté, fertility, rebirth, prosperity, an affinity for nature. For browngrotta arts’ 2018 Art in the Barn exhibition, more than 50 artists will offer blue and green in context. The artists participating in "Blue/Green: color/code/context" will interpret these colors and what they symbolize in myriad ways — as paintings, sculpture and tapestry.

Michael Radyk, inspired by research he did in the Netherlands in Amsterdam's Vondel Parks Nature Center, created handwoven works of recycled vinyl-coated polyester and feathers then “forgeries,” of them, as industrial jacquard woven pieces. The result, "Green Screen, Jacquard" and "Blue Heron, Jacquard," reference nature and recycling in their use of blue and green. Ferne Jacobs' finely detailed linen sculpture, "Open Globe," mixes greens and brown with other colors. The title, Jacobs says, "came from experiencing the piece as I was making it, in my mind, it was the earth. The colors -- green, brown, bluish-grey — are the elements on our planet. Open is because the work has no bottom or top. So can we see the earth as a globe/ball, open/unending.” Blue is the essence of Chiyoko Tanaka’s work, "Mud-Dyed Cloth (Blue)," an abstract weaving, that recalls the night sky.

The exhibition, "Blue/Green: color/code/context," will run for just 10 days, from April 28th to May 6th, at browngrotta arts, 276 Ridgefield Road, Wilton, Connecticut, 06897, 203-834-0623; art@browngrotta.com. The Artists Preview and Opening will be on Saturday the 28th from 1 to 6 p.m.

There will be a full-color catalog prepared for "Blue/Green: color/code/context" available at the exhibition or after May 1st from http://www.browngrotta.com.
