Even Dreamlands Gets The Blues

The Dreamland Creations in Stroudsburg, PA held an Artists Reception on Sunday December 5th which featured the work of numerous artists for their exhibition titled, “The Blue Show.” As with all their themed shows, Dreamland Creations encouraged artists to devise their own interpretation to what the concepts to the color blue or the emotional state to which it’s associated with entail. As always, this led to an array of styles and approaches to the theme which included some images simply captaining blue coloring while other contained some soul searching themes inspiring those who experienced them to remain reflective throughout the reception and beyond.

The reception concluded with a performance by guitarist Fred Kresge whose bluesy approach to some classic rock and jazz standards complimented the reception by adding an audible voice to the work. His presentation of the songs was simple which gave them the power to penetrate the senses of all who heard them. Many who did so found themselves looking at the works displayed upon the Dreamland’s walls in a new way.
