How are artists responding to the surreal world of the COVID-19 pandemic? See examples at the free “Art as Defiance in a Time of Pandemic” Gallery Showcase and Facebook event, Sept. 9 – 11, 2020, 6-8 pm.
Cumberland Arts is offering two ways to see submitted works to the “Art as Defiance in a Time of Pandemic” competition. In person at the Gallery Showcase, Sept. 9 – 11, 2020, 6 – 8 pm, Historic Buckley House, 11706 E. Washington St., Cumberland, IN, or online on Facebook@CumberlandArtsFestival. Crowd size is limited. Make a free reservation through Facebook and Eventbrite. Social health protocols will be enforced such as mask wearing, safe distancing and planned pathway through display.
People can also view the art on the Cumberland Arts Facebook, which will be updated to showcase the art with photos and videos. Award winners will be posted on Facebook. The art is for sale and there will be options for electronic payment. Artists were challenged to create a work expressive of their observations and experiences of the pandemic–both the unsettling and the inspirational. The Historic Buckley House is owned by Thomas Hendryx of Hendryx Mortuaries.
