Staycation

EXHIBIT DATES: Aug/Sept in Gallery 901
SUBMISSION DUE: Monday, July 15th, 2021

We often neglect to be tourists in our own backyard, missing out on experiences out-of-towners seek out. There aren’t many silver-linings to quarantine, but one could be our enhanced appreciation of all things local. Local businesses, local parks, local walking trails, local Instagram-worthy sights. This exhibit will feature all types of art that features the activities, landscapes and moods of our recent staycations when we entertained ourselves within and close to our homes.

EXHIBITS

Perspectives of a Pandemic

Extended through March 31st, we invite the public to call or come by to arrange a private socially distant tour of this thought-provoking exhibit which showcases artwork of variety of mediums (paint, photography, fiber, 3D, poetry) by a diverse array of local artists (from Brooklyn to Boston). All work was created between March and November of 2020. Some work responds to, and reflects the uncertainty of life during the coronavirus pandemic, some is a direct commentary on the additional strife caused by the heightened racial and equity tensions, and some was the result of seeking the escapist activity and therapeutic benefit of creative expression during quarantine.
