“HOMEBODIES”- VISA 312 Advanced Painting Exhibition
We all have had to deal with such a strange year. Nobody could have guessed that we would have to work primarily from home form the end of the last semester in 2020 up until now. Today marks the near exact year anniversary of when the university first closed. There is no clear line that connects these works – all of the artists work within varying sensibilities – yet we have all worked and supported one another through the same experience. As I look at this group of paintings I am struck by how well this outstanding group of students has managed to take an adverse situation and sincerely make the best out of it. Most have been “Homebodies” but certainly none have been “couch potatoes”.
