This has been a time of re-evaluation for many artists, of a chance to experiment, perhaps, and create imagery reflective of the stressful past year. Artists are naturally gifted with the ability to visualize their thoughts and feelings and to communicate them without words.  We are pleased to present to the public this diverse and creative body of work by our members.

In person show curated by Jorge Posada

Online show curated by Carol Crawford

Exhibition coordinators: Nancy Bruno, Alexis Mendoza and Jon Garfield
