In the Gallery: 

Moments in Time . . .  a very weird time

Online and in the gallery

Through October 18, 2020

This is a time like no other our generation has faced. It is no exaggeration to say that the pandemic has affected every one of us. It has changed how we navigate the most mundane tasks in our lives; in some cases, it may cause long-term change in our social and economic environments. We invite artists to respond to this particular, unique moment. 

Five $500 prizes winners were selected by Allison Nance, curator and arts non-profit consultant, at our virtual opening reception.  The winners are:

Nilou Kazenzadeh 

Leslie Duss

Sawetta Shaw

Rhonda Smith

Grace Doyle

An additional $500 Viewer's Choice prize will be awarded at the end of the exhibition.
