CALL FOR ARTISTS: “Created in COVID”

CALL FOR ARTISTS: “Created in COVID”

This Deadline Expired: Friday, August 20, 2021

The Lansdowne Arts Board is proud to announce an open call to artists for an in-person exhibition at the 2020 House showcasing original artwork created during the Pandemic.

Among many other lessons, this experience has reminded people how much they value the arts- especially after losing access to so much of them during the Pandemic. Whether large or small, public or private, experiential or experimental, art makes a difference in how we live our lives. This is an opportunity to share what we created to help inspire others during this unprecedented period of shared history.

This exhibition aims to showcase work from Lansdowne-area artists of all ages created during their time spent at home during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Artists of all disciplines (visual artists, crafters, writers, choreographers, performers, composers and others) are welcome and encouraged to submit up to 5 original works (or documentation of performances, public works, etc.) created between March 13th 2020 and June 28th 2021 (when the Pennsylvania Department of Health lifted the universal mask mandate).

Find the application here and check out the Landsdowne Arts Board website for more information. The deadline to submit work is August 20.

My interest in glass and found objects has allowed me to re-immerse myself in the world of toys, this time with a more mature twist. As I refer to my most sacred toys, I try to evoke universal images. There is a compelling irony as I create symbolic toys, which ask to be touched and manipulated, from glass, an extremely fragile material. I manipulate glass, recycle and integrate it with well-worn artifacts from the past, which are often perceived as useless in today's culture. This gives discarded items renewed purpose. As we interact tentatively with these objects they take us back to our most early memories while connecting us to other societies and eras.

The ever-changing seascape and creatures are the subjects, and I marvel at the minute details, textures, and movements. Through my art, I visually capture an iconic creature engage viewers and remind them of our fragile marine environment.
