Beyond the Mask: A Collection of Pandemic Quarantine Art 2020

During the quarantine, Lumby resident, Ernie Hurd joined the Facebook page “A World of Hearts” and decided to contribute to the theme.  With help from his siblings, he cut out a line of plywood hearts and placed them along Whitevale Road at the edge of his property and posted photos to the “A World of Hearts” page.  The 12 pieces he collected from various artists shown on that FB page will be exhibited at the show.

Would you like to add your art to this show?

The Monashee Arts Council is putting out a call to local artists who have created works during the past four months.  The show will be mounted on Sunday, August 2nd and will run from August 3-29, 2020 at The Village Gallery.  Photography, paintings, drawings, and a limited amount of 3D art will be accepted.  Many people have used the time to unleash their inner artist and express feelings about the pandemic as well as the quarantine.

To enter please submit a photo of your piece and a brief statement about it to the Monashee Arts Council either via email (monasheeartscouncil@gmail.com) or in person at 1975 Vernon Street (The Village Gallery/MAC office) on or before Wednesday, July 29th at noon.  Accepted entries will be received at the Monashee Arts Council office on Friday, July 31st (10am-4pm) and we require those participants to purchase or renew their MAC membership at that time to take part in the show.
