ART IN QUARANTINE
An exhibition of artwork that was produced to maintain normalcy, find new ways to stay busy, make sense of crisis and process stress and grief during COVID-19.
Sixty-four artworks were submitted to the “Art in Quarantine” exhibition by 35 artists including many paintings, drawings, prints and photographs, as well as sculptures, ceramics and digital media. Submissions were primarily from regional artists, but some came from as far away as New Hampshire and Montana! Five finalists were selected by our panel of jurors. Awards for these finalists were selected by popular vote on Facebook between August 2 - 7.
