Moments in Time...a very weird time
Exhibition Dates: September 10 — 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. This exhibition both chronicles this particular moment in time and surprises viewers with unique and unexpected perspectives.
52 works will be featured in this exhibition representing the full gamut of how the global Coronavirus pandemic and its associated ‘social distancing’ has affected artists participating in the show. Fear, uncertainty, anger and doubt are certainly typical responses but we also see evidence of the creative benefits of solitude and reflection and the time for artists to process them.
Five $500 prizes will be awarded, selected by independent arts expert Allison Nance and awarded at the virtual opening reception on Sunday, September 13, 2020 and a $500 Viewer's Choice Award will be selected by viewer's votes at the Athenaeum which will be tallied at the end of the show.
Moments in Time…a very weird time will be on view at the Athenaeum gallery and online.
