The Exchange Gallery invited artists to submit work that they have made since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis in early 2020. We invited all media, 2-D and 3-D, including videos; as always, we encouraged work by artists of ALL ages and levels of experience. The work may or may not have COVID itself as a theme, but in any event if the artist could tell us the story of how the crisis informed the work, all the better. More than 50 artists from seven Pennsylvania counties (and the Bronx) responded to the call, with more than 100 pieces; they work in painting, drawing, photography, printmaking, sculpture, digital arts (including video), fibers, and 2-D and 3-D mixed media. Some of the artists have shown here for years; some have never shown here before — and at least a couple have never shown their work in any gallery anywhere before. Some have made art for decades (for one of them, upwards of eight decades); two have not entered kindergarten yet.
The “What I Did In Quarantine” show’s e-commerce page has gone live here. You can make your purchases right there and we will hold your piece for you until the end of the show.
If you would like to have a piece shipped, please call or write to us.
