Artists throughout time have responded to their world with a visual understanding that speaks to our collective feelings and emotions.

Art has the capacity to go deeper and touch us in ways that news reports and charts cannot.

We want to share how the current extreme, frightening, life-altering crisis is manifest in your work.

We have solicited artists for one work of art they have created between March 1 and April 20. This show will stay up indefinitely.

The show is free to access directly on the web and has been curated into eight themes, as follows:

ONE   –   Without the moon, I stumble homeward

TWO   –   The old man looked up, saying, “Not all that radiates is kind”

THREE   –   I eat alone tonight thinking of my frayed world, desperate for order

FOUR   –   Laying down his bag, the beggar stood at the gate

FIVE   –   Colors defy the decreed isolation

SIX   –   (I’m thinking about suffering)

SEVEN   –   Earth celebrates its break from combustion

EIGHT   –   I had a dream tonight and you came with me. We danced and sang. I was no longer alone at the window.

Join us for the virtual roundtable, Tuesday, May 5 at 4:00 pm with facilitator Cruwys Brown, see web page for Zoom link.
