Here is a sampling of statements from the artists:

Nancer Ballard: Most of all, this time has reaffirmed my conviction that there is no room for “othering” in “us;” we are all in this together.

Anita Helen Cohen: Even though [my] paintings represent 'shelter and calm', there is also movement and chaos in the water.

April Jakubec: [My] portraits with hidden eyes take on extra meaning during this time of isolation and fighting for equality, representing feelings of being “unseen”.

Madeline Lee: With the inability to go many places aside from where I live, I've found myself paying more attention to the spaces I inhabit, noticing my surroundings.

Niki Li: By immersing myself in art making and contemplation, I managed to find the light and power within myself.

Cesar Rodrigues: [My] paintings may seem chaotic at first glance, like the times we are in, but when you really sit back and look you begin to see the beauty.
