The Nassau County Museum of Art is a museum that is actually a mansion from the 1900s. It is 3 stories tall and has an exhibition called Blue. The color blue is one of the most popular colors and appears across all art forms. Blue can tell a story and a feeling. Blue can mean night or it can mean cold. Blue also gives off emotions like sadness. This exhibition has artworks that use blue as the main color to tell their story. 


Huxley’s Guide to Switzerland: 

Huxley’s Guide to Switzerland is a painting done with acrylic on a canvas. The artist’s name is Christopher Winter. It is 35.5 x 27.5 inches and was made in 2011. I really love this piece of art. The most beautiful looking art out of all of them in my opinion. The color blue was masterfully used, especially for the mountains in the background. I love how the mountains go from light to dark. I do not understand the story behind it but it looks emotional. The two characters floating above the water is a beautiful sight. 


Buddha Mind:

Buddha Mind is a 2019 artwork created by Bettina WitteVeen. It is on C-print and plexiglass. It is 22 x 22 inches. I think this is a very cool looking piece of art. It is not the most exciting piece of art but I like how powerful the blue is here. This piece kind of looks like that negative filter except it’s dominated by blue. I also like the white and how it looks like beams of light being held down by the buddha. Almost as if there’s a huge light behind it waiting to be released.  


Beulen Birne [Blugly Pear]:

This artwork was made in 1934 on paper with gouache. The Dimensions are 8 ¼ x 8 ½ . I honestly really don’t like this artwork. It seems pretty boring to look at no offense to the artist. You know sometimes you see a piece of art in the museum and you don’t understand why it’s there? That’s how I feel right now looking at it. I think its the style of it that I don’t like.
