How do we make sense of this strange new world due to Coronavirus? This juried exhibit will showcase Visual Art reflecting your personal response to the quarantine or inspired by some aspect of the global pandemic. What is the impact of this major pause and re-set for our planet? How has it changed your life or your relationships?

This show will serve as a historical record of a very strange but shared social experience. Our hope is that by the time the show opens at the Downtowner this fall, life has returned to normal and we celebrate with a public opening!

Submission is $5 per piece, 1-3 images per artist. Two-dimensional and three-dimensional visual art will be the primary focus of this show, including sketchbook journals (no touch display: on a table, open to a single page spread). No size or media restrictions.
For entry information:
