This exhibition at The Firefly Artists’ Gallery at 90 Main Street, Northport, NY celebrates the color blue, whether it is used as seen in nature, or following Gauguin’s inspiration. Artists are invited to submit artwork that primarily features shades of blue (50% or more of the image) for this juried call.

Exhibition entries must be original artwork, no reproductions (with the exception of photography). All jewelry must be framed.

Artwork including frame must be under 24″ on the longest side.
