For over 20 years, the CAA has hosted a fall exhibit, open to artists from the New England states, centered around a color, red or blue, depending on the year. Both the success of the exhibit series plus the challenge to participating artists, lies in channeling the varied meanings of a color like blue. It is the color of trust, loyalty, cleanliness and understanding. Blue is more than a color.
