Gallery of Covid Art
With all that’s been happening during the past six months (not only the Covid pandemic, but also environmental catastrophes, a fresh urgency in the social justice movement, and more) art offers a unique way to respond. Whether capturing and expressing emotions, or offering beauty and hope, art can have a special role to play, and we want to share that with our community. See some of the work our artists have made in response to these strange and difficult times. We hope it touches, inspires and uplifts.

"Grateful that I am an artist, I've been painting more than ever during this pandemic. In the past, we traveled often so painting has been a way to escape and take a creative journey. This watercolor, "Koi Pond, Kyoto" is based on a photo I took on our last trip to Japan. It's a reminder of a different time and of a peaceful place." - Naomi Wilsey
"This drawing was made as part of an art chain organized by Tova Speter, in which each artist reacts to what the previous artist did. You can learn more about the project and see some of the complete chains at the website Chains Of Positive Energy (C.O.P.E.) " - John Lechner

"Inspiration is obvious to me as a black woman - as a country we are in deep s***! Polarized politics. We disregard black and brown lives in EVERY systemic way. White denial, guilt, and fear keep us all from evolving... progressing. But thankful for the woke among us." - Laura Palmer Edwards
