RELIGIOUS ART | NEWS OF WEEK

THE ALPHA OMEGA ARTS
By Gregory Disney-Britton
We love religious art in all colors of the rainbow, but there's no denying we have a soft spot for blue. So when we read about the new research findings that blue has surpassed orange as the most popular color in art, we expected to showcase blue art today from an exhibit in Indianapolis. Blue favorites from the "Creative Renewal Arts Fellowship Retrospective" included Gordon Strain's "Don't Drink the Water" and Ben Johnson's "Visual Misperception." It was, however, the "orange" that "blew" us away, and that's why Anila Quayyum Agha's "Yellow Flash Orange" (above) is our NEWS OF WEEK.
