“Out of the Blue” at State Capitol

“Out of the Blue” is an exhibition of contemporary fiber art at the New Mexico State Capitol Rotunda Gallery in Santa Fe from April 26 through August 9, 2019. Blue is the color of the sky and sea. It is often associated with depth and stability. It symbolizes trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, intelligence, faith, truth, and heaven.

The fiber artists from Studio Art Quilt Associates in New Mexico have responded to this challenge with a large array of works. They encompass a variety of approaches, from traditional piecework to the latest in technical materials. The size range is from 18 inches to 80 inches wide, with the average approximately 40 inches.

The exhibit was juried by Dr. Cynthia Sanchez, curator of the New Mexico State Capitol art collection.

You may view the exhibit when the Capitol is open: Monday through Friday, 8 am to 5 pm. It is located at 490 Old Santa Fe Trail, Santa Fe, New Mexico.
