Transitions and Reflections: Abstract Art During a Pandemic

Sun, 05/23/2021 to Mon, 05/23/2022

During 2020, many artists had to adapt to life during a pandemic. Galleries closed, exhibits were postponed indefinitely, workshops were cancelled, and a strong shift occurred to viewing art virtually.

Two Ithaca artists reflect on staying energized and optimistic during this surreal time. Abstract artists Barbara Mink and Ivy Stevens-Gupta’s exhibit “Transitions and Reflections” highlights paintings created during COVID-19.

Social distancing and long hours in the studio are typical behavior for many artists. But, how does an artist create art not knowing when or if their work will be exhibited, and when anxiety about the future can often be debilitating? Also weighing heavily on their minds were thoughts of people losing their jobs, food insecurities, racial injustice, political unrest and oh so many shuttered businesses.

Organizing one’s studio, exploring new painting techniques, honing websites and social media presence, while learning to navigate Zoom interviews and teach virtually were all ways they choose to move forward. Both artists poured their hearts into creating emotional pieces that infused color, texture and intuition, that healed their hearts and lifted their spirits. Giving back to your community is a great way to heal and a portion of proceeds from this exhibit will go to support Foodnet Meals on Wheels.
