Description

COVID-19 has profoundly changed the contours of our daily lives. At this time of great loss and physical distancing, many of us have turned to creative outlets to help us cope, express our anguish, and gain agency when we feel helpless. “Together apART: Creating During COVID” features more than 250 works of painting, photography, sculpture, sewing, crafting, songwriting, poetry and other creative activities by 224 artists and community members from throughout the Hudson Valley. All of the exhibited works were made between March 2020 and March 2021.

Creativity has helped us to reclaim a connection to our friends, families and selves. We have found new ways to celebrate and mourn and to recognize and memorialize major life events from weddings to passings. We have documented our experiences in quarantine diaries and creative cookbooks. We have endeavored to protect our loved ones and those on the frontlines with handcrafted masks. We have painted the scenes and changing seasons from our windows, and captured the faces of our “quarantine teams” in photo and gouache. “Together apArt” is an exhibition of the creative projects that gave meaning and purpose to our lives at an unprecedented time. The diverse range of expressions reflect individual contemplations on the year of the pandemic, yet also highlight the shared experiences of this unique period in our common history – the togetherness in an era of apartness.
