April 24 – May 16, 2020
In March 2020, with the advent of the COVID19 pandemic, we were unable to have our monthly Call for Entries and exhibits at the art center–no gathering of artists and patrons, no music, no wine and cheese. We were all disappointed. But creativity does not stop and cannot be put on hold. In April we asked artists from all over the United States to create for a themed, digital exhibit: ART AT A DISTANCE, American Life in Isolation. We have a video for you. Enjoy.
For a complete catalog of all the art that was accepted, scroll down for special links.
We awarded prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place plus some honorable mentions. The criteria we used for awards was:
- Is the artwork technically well done?
- Does the artwork convey the theme without an explanation?
- Does the artwork reflect some emotion (e.g. humor, loneliness, hopefulness, fear, boredom?
If you are interested in purchasing any of the artwork, contact us and we will put you in touch with the artist. We are taking no commissions, so all the sales will go directly to the artists.
