By July 3, 2020July 7th, 20202 Comments

I will probably be at the store on July 4th for a while (during the heat of the day) catching up on paperwork as usual.  Please call first, but chances are I’ll be here between 10 and 2pm. 

Happy Independence Day – please celebrate safely!

“While We Sheltered”

“5.5.20” Mixed media by Lena Rushing
About the piece: The day I started, on April 26th, Johns Hopkins University reported over 200,000 deaths, 2.88 million cases related to Covid-19. The day I finished, on May 5th there were more than 3.5 million reported cases and 251,718 deaths. In the time it took me to make this box, there were at least 700,000 new reported cases and more than 50,000 deaths. Dimensions: 12″x15″x 3 1/2″ shadowbox.

  • Awesome message & art images, Etty! Wondering if you’re still accepting images for your ONLINE exhibit, “While We Sheltered?” I wanted to suggest some artists connect with you to share work online, but wasn’t sure if you’re only doing your in-gallery show now? Surprisingly, artists missed your generous online opportunity. Probably focused on, oh, I don’t know…Life with Covid?! Trying to help others when we can on the art fronta… I’ll follow your lead…Have a reflective July 4th Holiday. Caring Thoughts, Ronda & Larry PS: Larry completed 2 cool works during Covid. I thought of entering them in your live exhibit. Sadly, both were larger than Call for Entry specs (1 wall-hung, 1 free-standing.)
