The Burke Arts Council is pleased to announce this virtual exhibition of artwork created during the 2020 Lock- Down.
(PART ONE AND PART TWO)
We asked artists to share their feelings through their artwork while being ‘sheltered-in-place’. We know that some artists thrive in self-isolation; others may find this experience lonely and boring; while some may grieve for friends or family. This collection of artwork illustrates how these artists have expressed themselves during this time. Some have changed their pallet; others have changed their art form altogether – all are sharing the creativity that inspired them. The response was amazing, as artists from across the southeast have shared their work.
We had planned to host the exhibition in our new home in the fall of 2020. But the pandemic and the environment it has created has forced us to restructure our plans. We are very happy to present this artwork virtually. We still hope to present this show in person at a later date, so please stay tuned. In the meantime, please enjoy this presentation.
