On To New Horizons

How time and circumstances can change because of COVID-19! Earlier this year, The Arts Center’s Exhibition Committee thought of the On To New Horizons exhibit as an expression of being liberated from Covid-19 restrictions. During the “creative making period” for the artists preparing for the exhibit, safety precautions needed to be scaled up again to limit potential exposures, and get the community back to declines in outbreaks.

Many of the themed-works created were inspired by COVID-19. However, artists also found new horizons unrelated to the pandemic. Some found opportunities to look inward and discovered new directions within themselves. Others looked outward and found new paths to follow and new art media to explore. It is exciting to see how many people picked up a new tool or medium, found a new creative path or started making art for the first time. Witness how art making can transform doubts, pain and insecurities into joy and contentment.

On To New Horizons showcases 53 artists represented with 71 works in every imaginable medium.

The exhibit is partly invitational and partly a non-juried open call, giving an interesting mix of approach and outcome of artwork. While the exhibit is comprised of mostly visual art, the Arts Center is pleased to also share a number of literary, read-aloud works and music.

Participating artists are: Bonnie Albright, Joey Azul, Dominique Bachelet, Greg Bal, Sumner Barr, Rich Bergeman, Pat Berman, Patricia Browning, Kathy Cabot, Shuo Cai, Michele Campione, Sabra Comins, Brenda Congdon, Margot Diederick, Brian Egan, Gale Everrett-Stahlke, Dawn Figueroa, Cora Freyer, Kathryn Friday, Arianna Gazca, Suzanne Getz, Ginny Gibson, Leland Gilsen, Anthony Gordon, Leslie Green, Jeff Gunn, Rolly Gutierrez, Phylllis Helland, Jen Hernandez, Sheens Hopkins, Carole James, Julie Kahn, Cindy Killip, Sharon Rackham King, Colleen Kitchen, Lee Kitzman, Zi Li, Joan Linse, Justin Lodge, Anne Mavor, Mary McDermott, Karen Miller, Kristen Morley, Sara Morrissey, Scott Moss, Shagufta Mulla, Hanne Niederhausen, Kristie Potwara, Ridwana Rahman, Diana Ryan, Curt Shaw, Anna Silvestri and Leslie Tejada.
