“We would like to exhibit EVERYONE’s work …. All artworks will be exhibited in the form of prints so that everyone has the opportunity to exhibit their work! We’re donating all the profits to Create Charity, a charity whose focus is on creative and mental health – something which is super important to us.” – Zoe & Eleanor, curators at New Grooves.

Update: So happy to read the exhibition review by ‘Round Lemon’. Here’s a quote from it;

“Among the many forms of art presented like jewelry, sculpture and sea glass is a much needed emphasis on the art of embroidery, a form of art that is underrepresented and underrated in the world as we know it through spectacular artists like Tracy Davidson, Claire Graves and Catherine Hill.”

“Covid-19 has isolated the public more than ever. The concept for this project was to document the societal shift due to Covid-19 and examine if and how the public opinion on social sustainability had changed due to the pandemic. I believe it is necessary to reflect on what we have been through and to have a virtual ‘space’ to come together in the midst of the struggle. This exhibition has been named ‘Alone, Together’ because of the unity we have found amidst the isolation.

The exhibition aims to document experiences of Covid-19 and lockdown, gathering a range of outlooks and responses of these events from a wide range of people. Gathering work from varied ages and backgrounds- anyone is welcome to take part. I hope that this exhibition can bring people together, create a community, and demonstrate that even though we are all navigating uncertain and difficult times, the unity we have found is one amazing takeaway from this experience.

Please explore the website to view the full exhibition and get some exposure for the wonderful artists exhibited. Feel free to share! Happy exploring!” The exhibition and website were designed and built virtually by Shannon Skye Robinson (Curator).

“Welcome and we appreciate that you are visiting  the ArtisTTable’s 39th online exhibition, Art in the Time of Corona. It’s been a crazy ride the last many months. 2020 showed us a lot of new things. Many of which we never thought possible let alone anything we could imagine in our own lifetimes. Our theme for this show has tried to address some of these challenges if you will.” – ArtisTTable.

“When we began in 2012 our vision was to create a place for artists to share their work. To provide artists a professionally curated online space would be a value-added experience for both artists that have an established online presence as well as for those that are newer to showing their art.
Exhibitions are generally themed to give artists something to work towards. Juror’s are selected to curate the individual shows to insure that the work is of the highest standards. The juried process is one that has always be one that gives greater prestige to the art that is included in the show and those that are awarded special recognition.
Over the years, it has been our great pleasure to have presented well over 30 of these exhibitions.” – ArtisTTable Online Exhibitions.
