Description

"Creativity is the greatest gift that life can offer.  Whether it be the mastery to create a vaccine, or the capability to find something positive to dwell upon during a time of despair, creativity is the key to survival.  We as artists are so blessed to be given a God-given talent that not only can be shared with the world, but something we can focus upon when the world is in trauma.  We can take the negative and find something positive.

Welcome to “Art in Isolation” our very first virtual art exhibition and competition.  We hope you enjoy the beautiful works of art by the many talented artists who used this time in isolation to pursue and create something very beautiful and worthwhile.

Origin of the Show  When we made the announcement to the club that our art shows were indefinitely postponed, I felt there had to be another way we could continue our exhibitions and keep the club active.  The idea came to me one day when I thought about how my 98 year-old Dad, who was bed-ridden with just a few remaining  days of life on earth, was able to jury my students’ art competition by viewing the show on a laptop computer.

Independently, Tom Troland had suggested that artists utilize the VAC Palette by sending him pictures of their paintings for viewers to enjoy.  VAC had been looking to move forward with the times, and this idea was just what it needed.  So, Tom and I worked diligently together to create our very first virtual art show. We must have sent 100 emails back and forth to one another to put this show together, but I think you will agree it was well worth the effort.

Thanks to each and all of the 32  artists, both members and non-members, who showed their support to this new concept by sharing their beautiful works of art submitted to our very first virtual art show. Thank you to our judge, Meredith Boysen,  a talented  Long Island graphic and commercial artist whose gratuitous service, contributed to our financial ability to donate half of the proceeds of this show to the NYS Covid-19 Response Fund, and share in our learning experience of how to judge a cyberspace show.  Thanks to our President, Frank Mcintyre, for supporting the idea by putting the concept to a vote and encouraging all to participate.  And above all, many thanks to my teammate, Tom Troland, whose artistic graphic and computer skills made this entire project possible.  Besides presenting the entire show on the VAC Palette, he masterfully created a judge’s portfolio with a beautiful slide show for our judge to view and score our paintings with ease. The portfolio will be re-edited into a downloadable digital album/catalog when we announce the Awards winners on June 14."
