For me, the pandemic and the lockdown is always connected to another event in Spartanburg that kind of resembles a start with a bang. Spartanburg was shook by a Tornado shortly before the closedowns started.

“Woman of Color” is a social criticism of the societal expectation for people of color to conform to white ideals. I created the piece after attending a Black Lives Matter protest.

They are based on sketches of the flowers and plants in my garden. Each image is reduced to simply shapes and forms that allows brush marks to create texture and complexity.

The Art of Survival

Artists in our regional area share the art they created during the social isolation of the 2020 Covid 19 global pandemic. Historic first hand witnesses to this extraordinary time, these artists found strength through their art.

This is a beautiful show and we encourage everyone to visit our Solomon Gallery and view these artworks. We have Covid-19 precautions in place, so you can feel comfortable browsing the gallery.
We want to make this a celebration of and for everyone in the region.

This time of isolation has been difficult for artists and we want to give them an opportunity to freely exhibit the work they have created during this historic moment.

There will be multiple awards and local celebrities will be judging the exhibit. There will also be a People's Choice award that will allow viewers to vote online for their favorite artwork.

We are making this exhibit free to the public and free to the artists who wish to enter. 100% of donations that we receive for this show will go to the prize pool.
