The color blue has an extensive and rich artistic history, exerting its power on humanity’s social, religious, and aesthetic imagination from ancient times onwards. Out of the medieval era, various shades of blue came to signify royalty, religious purity, romance, sadness, and the great expanses of nature. In the 20th century, the rise of monochrome and the advent of space photography further expanded the blue’s aesthetic domain. That being said, what’s new in blue? Our call seeks to further this exploration of color in contemporary practice. Works in traditional and new media are invited, as are the freshest and freest ideas.
CJ Cowden is a self-taught artist who believes her work is a continuous study of color, texture and movement. Consisting of subconscious impressions and influences from the world around her. She is a world traveler who loves nature and tries to create a balance between her experiences and materials. Testing and exploring different media. She enjoys creating art that draws viewers into the world around us through an abstract point of view, in hopes they will be able to feel a sense of peace while visually exploring her art. CJ is an award winning artist, she shows her work both locally, across the nation and has work in private collections. CJ believes in and has a passion for helping other artists achieve their goals through mentoring and encouragement.
