The Rowayton Art Center is extending an invitation to artists during this unprecedented time of separation due to the COVID-19 virus. Online submissions for RAC’s Shutdown Throwdown are accepted now until Friday, May 8. The show will run through June 30 and is open to all artists interested in exhibiting their artwork online.
The theme, an announcement said, focuses on “how as humans, we have the ability to meet with great adversity and find a silver lining. As artists, we have the ability to transform adversity into a source of motivation and inspiration for our work. Whether you are spending this ‘shutdown’ reflecting, introspecting, or appreciating simple things that suddenly seem sweeter, we want to know how it is informing your art. Creativity helps us all to heal, grow and have a little fun on the way.”
