Anxiety in a Time of Pandemic Exhibition Seeking Submissions




Entry Fee: $25.00 (invoiced once entry is received)

Anxiety in a Time of Pandemic

Anxiety is a major aspect within society, only more prevalent since the beginning of COVID-19 and other current global events, such as the election and black lives matter. There needs to be more societal awareness brought to the struggles that humans face with anxiety, especially during a time of limited social interaction, combined with the risk of serious illness. Everyone copes with their own anxiety in a multitude of ways. While anxiety is an intangible occurrence, some sufferers are capable of feeling oppressed and suffocated to the extent that they begin to perceive a physical sense overtaking their consciousness. Artists are capable of bridging the gap of visually portraying the sometimes-overwhelming intangible feelings anxiety possesses. Anxiety in a Time of Pandemic aims to exhibit works of art expressing the impact artists have felt through this unprecedented time in society.

Anxiety in a Time of Pandemic is open for paintings, printmaking, photography, drawings, prints, and mixed media, and sculpture. No Video work is being accepted for this exhibition. All entries must be an original piece.
