Out of the Blue Group Show

January 10 – 28, 2024
Leslie Grove Gallery, 1158 Queen Street East, Toronto

Sometimes, things just happen … “Out of the Blue”.

January will see the Leslie Grove Gallery hosting its second annual juried COLOUR show, this year we bring you the colour BLUE. The use of blue in art has a long rich history; from the frescoes and statues of the ancient Egyptians and the spiritual art of the Renaissance to the sense of wonder and tranquility evoked in Impressionist art.

Blue is no less important today as contemporary artists grapple with portraying subtle nuances of emotion. Blue is associated with everything from sorrow and nostalgia to optimism and joy.

Artists’ Network invites you to celebrate the colour blue with us, in all of its possible manifestations.

Join us at the Leslie Grove Gallery with the “Out of the Blue” show this January to reflect on what BLUE means to you.
