Welcome to Am I Blue? This is an online exhibition created by the Treasure Valley Artists Alliance.

Blues: music expressing longing for a better life, lost love, or lamenting injustice. By listening to or creating the music one is said to overcome the sadness and lose the blues.

Am I Blue?

The color blue is significant in our lives. It symbolizes loyalty, strength, wisdom, and trust. The lighter the color of blue the freer we feel. Blues speak of peace and tranquility. And yet, Blue has a darker side, one of pensive thoughts, dejection and despondent emotions. Gloomy and mournful blue can express our deepest sadness.
