Attracted to the grease and grime, Blume leapt at the opportunity to transpose these 3D metal components into 2D oil on canvas.
  • Eight and Sand presents “Red”. Red is a very powerful color. We relate it to love and anger, it’s the color of our blood when it flows out. In this group show the artists were asked only to have the work somehow relate to the color or the word. local and national artists are participating.
