Juror Kim Abeles says about the show:

“Some of the artists in the exhibit made direct reference to the pandemic, while others made note in their statements about their quarantine. Clearly, each artist reacted to this urgent dilemma through creative production, and some through a new-found lens. Artists are particularly brave when they intuitively express and experiment. The exhibition is comprised of a range of genres, mediums, and approaches. The variety in the artworks is where I was able to see most clearly how our artmaking becomes a portrait of ourselves – a self-portrait, a collective, a community portrait. Each artwork communicates as much through process as manifestation—the journey as well as the destination.”

“COVID has inspired artists to continue to create and reflect on the times in which we live,” says President Victor Picou.  “We are coping and surviving by supporting each other.”

You may order the art by contacting the artists directly, and you may order a print-on-demand catalog from Blurb.com for about $20, plus shipping.  A link will be included on the Exhibition page at www.pasadenasocietyofartists.org
