QUARANTINED!

Artists from James Little’s class, “Non-Objective Painting, Color and Design,” kept painting after New York shut down.

My idea for this exhibition originated from being quarantined during the Covid-19 virus and after seeing the success of the Art Students League’s online classes. To my own surprise, it became clear the students/artists were serious about their work and study, whether they were in the ASL atelier setting or not. I also thought these unusual circumstances offered a unique opportunity for them to challenge themselves. The results of the works in this exhibition offer a unique insight into the creative minds and determination of these artists under unparalleled circumstances. I knew it had to be shared. Therefore, I assembled some of the most striking and compelling examples for this exhibition as a testament to the importance that art serves as a catalyst for spiritual, social, and mental health and against intolerance.
