I’m excited to have been included in ECA’s wonderful project highlighting local artists’ creative approaches during the time of pandemic.
POST PAUSE is an online arts exhibition of works created during this time of pandemic in recognition of the expanded community of artists working in Western Massachusetts. All artworks featured in this show were created after Friday March 13, 2020. Support for the artists, exposure, and connection are primary goals.
The creative practice of many artists and performers has inevitably been impacted by changes in our local and global realities since the emergence of COVID-19. Works included overtly or quietly respond to the complexities of this moment.
The goal of this online exhibition is to amplify this shared moment and make visible a representation a diverse array of artists in our region, using the Easthampton City Arts website as a hub. The hope is to promote connection and creative momentum in this time of potential isolation now and moving forward, and to include many voices in this visual conversation. Viewers are directly linked with artists to encourage the sale of works or to support artists in other ways. Artists are also encouraged to reach out to one another to form new dialogues and links within our community.
Curator Maggie Nowinski will be highlighting a selection of artists and works from this larger exhibition from November 2020 through January of 2021 via the Easthampton City Arts Instagram account @easthamptoncityarts.
