For nearly a year now, the Covid-19 virus has invaded our lives in devastating ways that we could have never before imagined. Every aspect of our existence has changed. Destitution, including hunger, unemployment and homelessness has shattered the future for many, and our perspective of life and death has forever been altered.
For this juried exhibition 17 artists look upon this period of time, creating reflective imagery through various drawing techniques, including 3D and digital processes. For these artists the act of drawing, whether a series of doodles or a finished sketch, has triggered an expressive survival mechanism. By directing their feelings of isolation, anger and sadness toward freedom of thought, skill and determination, they have worked through the obstacles and uncertain complications that present themselves in every work of art, just as in life, and extended the gift to all of us.
