Open Call: A slash of Blue-

Gerald Moore Gallery is pleased to invite submissions to this year’s open call  A slash of Blue-  

This title is taken from the first line of a poem by Emily Dickinson:


A slash of Blue –
A sweep of Gray –
Some scarlet patches on the way,
Compose an Evening Sky –
A little purple – slipped between –
Some Ruby Trousers hurried on …
