“Art as Defiance in a Time of Pandemic” ~ A Cumberland Arts Competition
The finished art pieces have been submitted to Cumberland Arts. It is time for the reveal! Art in this showcase a reflection and defiant expression of our shared experiences in society as we live and thrive within the experience of this global pandemic. Come view the art in person at the gallery or view online. Reservations are highly recommended.
The Gallery Showcase is being held on Sept. 9, 10 and 11, 2020, 6 pm to 8 pm at The Historic Buckley House. This was the site of the gallery event for the “Ten Worthy Places” competition that was part of the 2018 Cumberland Art Festival. Tom Hendryx, Hendryx Mortuaries, owns the building and is graciously allowing Cumberland Arts to once again use this lovely place as a pop-up art gallery.
Patrons & guest can view the Art on the Cumberland Arts Facebook, which will be updated to showcase the art with photos and videos. Award winners will be posted on Facebook. The artwork is for sale, with donations accepted as well. Electronic payment options will be utilized to minimize one on one contact with patrons and guests. Watch Cumberland Arts Facebook page for updates and event details.
